LF isn't a rose I know, but David Austin calls it 'a short climber'.   


As it's only in it's second year the canes may not be going to get longer this year.  When it is properly established it'll put out more canes from the base which I imagine will be longer.  


DA says it reaches ten feet, but that will be referring to a well grown rose several years old.

It looks as if the leaves are being eaten by adult vine weevils.


Is it in a container or planted into the ground?


Can we see a pic of the whole plant please?

Hmm, not sure but it looks a bit like an eryngium from here.


I would move that hosta - dig it up with a big root ball and move it somewhere where it can really show off - give it lots of water.

Yes, it's infectious isn't it?  But we're due for a very chilly snap next week - I'll be fleecing my figs and pear blossom.
