The shade issueReview by husbear
Rating
Regarding what others have said about Dublin Bay not reaching its full growth potential in shade, I've certainly found that to be true and if I ever relocate mine will put it in full sun rather than the partial shade it's currently in. I've had mine three seasons now and its longest cane is still less than 48 in. On the other hand, it does TOLERATE shade very well, and has been healthy and happy in my zone 6b garden, producing its gorgeous roses on a regular basis througout the growing season. For some reasons the deer, rabbits and insects that decimate my other roses never touch it, which is definitely a plus. (Posted on 7/14/2018)
A gorgeous vivid true red which in most direct light appears as deep velvet.Review by Antony

In Zone 9 she is a beauty. Living in the hills above San Francisco this eye-popping red rose has no sign of mildew, leaf curl, virus, or yellowing. The crisp bright grren leaves add to the drama of the visual effect of this brilliant red flower. We alll know ‘red roses’ (and I worked in the Tournament of Roses in Pasadena); visitors stop instantly, inquiring “What is that stunner? Yes...I’m buying more! (Posted on 6/19/2018)
So far, so good!Review by Dennis

I planted 2 of these last year in late spring along two metal trellises on either side of the entrance to my front porch. The location is facing South and gets sun All Day.

I was surprised they were able to establish their root system and still have time to put on 10-15 pretty red roses on each plant. (The roses seemed to stay pretty for a Long Time, too!)

I 'only' gave it 4 stars initially, not because I'm not well-pleased with them, but because This Year should tell just how prolific they really are. I am looking forward to continued progress! (Posted on 3/21/2017)
Shade tolerant?Review by Laura

Bought two of these to be climbers. Very slow growth for both. Wondering how many hours of sun per day they need. Finally, year 2, they have buds showing color. One is still just over a foot tall. Neighboring David Austin roses are newer, much larger and more robust. Maybe they don't like marine influence! (Posted on 5/24/2016)

I am living in the City of Roses--Portland,'OR .I've had this rose in a big pot for three years now.The second year it produced lots of beautiful big red blooms. This year,so far I have counted six new buds,I cut it way back in the early spring and it's doing fine in its new home.Same pot,fertilized,good soil,water from nature and mulched;cross fingers.

it is not shade tolerantReview by nataliya

two years and still rather small. The first year it did bloom several times, good size flowers, pretty red... Last summer the 15" "bush" did not add any volume and rather seamed even smaller. So I replanted it in the sunny part of my garden later in the fall. Will update in the spring-summer 2015. (Posted on 2/20/2015)
