Description says this rose is "bushy, compact" and under 36" in height. Mine has shot up to at least 8 ft on one cane and intermediate heights with other canes. I did not prune the cane that has gone "tall". Beautiful, intense red. Second year, grafted.

You may have discovered 'Grande Amore Climbing' ;-)
Sometimes I've found the breeder size estimates to be way off for certain climates, but you might try propagating a cutting from that cane nonetheless.

My Grand Amore - 3rd year (on multiflora from Palatine) - is one of my taller hybrid teas. I'm in zone 5b and it will die back quite a bit over winter but come September it's 5 feet tall and some stems go beyond 5 feet. I would not describe Grand Amore as "bushy" - for me it's very tall and upright. Very good rose for me.

Survived a winter that included temps down to -15C (5F) with no die back. Foliage is lush, no disease so far.

This will be my second year with White Lies. Last summer it had an incredible production of flowers and as I recollect, was disease-free. The flowers make a beautiful transition from white to a saturated magenta-red, and were long lasting. There were several strong flushes through the summer and early fall, though with less in the fall. I highly recommend it. It has almost no scent, but its beauty and mass of production makes it worth it. I should also note that it was in partial shade for most of the day, getting perhaps 3-4 hours of direct sun. I note the comment about having a strong scent like fresh peaches. I will monitor this year to see if that changes for me.
