Thans BL - your photo is great - as is your garden! What a stunning rose.
Does it mind being pruned hard? I love the colour and would like to get one, as I already have a Generous and a Shropshire on a west wall, so wanted something different.
It would also get a lot of sun once it is about 5.5ft high as it would be above fence level and could also use the ceanothus as support, so I'm wondering if it would tolerate absoltely no sun until it reaches that height and if it would then be better to get a vigorous climber/rambler which reaches that height fast...
Disease resistance is important though, as it would be wet shade (though well drained) and I don't fancy spraying all year!
Thank you again
