Just wondering how tall Stiletto has gotten for those that are growing her. I've had her for 3 years now and she only gets like 20-24" tall. But loaded with blooms, so definitely a keeper, fragrant too.

My 3rd year Stiletto own-root gets up to about 4-5 foot tall in my garden. It grows upright but with a good width to it. Vigorous grower with perhaps 20-25 blooms per flush for me. I am in zone 5b - Chicago area. Comes through winter well with protection. Very good garden rose for color, but thus far the fragrance has been lacking and bloom size and form are lacking for exhibition.

My bush tends to produce what I would consider exhibition style blooms in each flush. Not all of them, mind you, but 5 or 6 per flush as a 3 year own root plant. Plus the color is excellent, extremely bright and saturated. It gets a LOT of sun during the season, maybe this helps?

I have a 3rd year, own root pot grown Stiletto that was transplanted into a 20 inch barrel this spring, after getting a hard prune. The bush settled in, (took about 4-6 weeks), then exploded with growth, leaves, canes, everything, then produced a splendid long lasting flush of gorgeous saturated blooms. One of the canes shot up 3.5 feet, with a huge cluster, I ended up trimming the cane after the flush to even out the bush, but I'm pretty sure this one would easily grow 4' all around if I let it. Maybe the own root ones have better growth? I know that often the grafted ones are quicker to get to a mature size as a general rule, but this is a relatively new plant on the market, so who knows? I'm in Zone 7A, Albuquerque NM, hot and dry, and this plant is in full sun.

Received a Paradise from Edmunds' in April - problem is it was supposed to be Rio Samba. Thank you Edmunds' for a job not well done. Have to agree with Slugger's comment below that the foliage on Paradise burns very badly in the heat and sun. Will get the shovel come fall and hopefully I can get a real Rio Samba next spring. I ordered 3 Rio Samba (to plant together to maximize color impact) from 3 different nurseries - Edmunds', Rogue Valley and Regan. Only received one Rio Samba - thank you Regan. I hope to have better luck next year.

Paradise seems to be showing up a lot this year. I bought two body bags, allegedly Spartan and Fragrant Cloud, which turned out to be Paradise. I think I am giving up on grocery store BBs.

I also had a Paradise that I had to give up on because of the fried foliage, it just could not take it here in New Mexico. I might attempt it again if I were to plant one that received morning sun ONLY, nothing after 1 pm. The bloom production might be affected, but I think it would go a long way to saving the foliage.
