For those who are interested in that rose, there is a documentary called Roses and Climbers &Creepers (from the series Great British Garden Revival) that shows a splendid Adelaide d'Orléans growing at Mottisfont Abbey. There are beautiful pictures of that rose but the quick view (at 9 minutes from the beginning) of it in the video is striking. In his 1991 book Graham Stuart Thomas is recommending to train it on an arch or on a tree.

went to see your recommendation for adelaide d'orleans, now I have to buy a bucket of white paint for my garden bench, to get the same effect of the one they are sitting on.

Hello, I didn't connect for a long time but I hope you will love that rose. I do not grow it because I have no structure to train it on but I was tempted after seeing it in the documentary !

Has anyone done any planned shaping for this rose? I have a 1 year old specimen. It has shown hints of what it is capable of with a couple of vines 3 m long. I am considering winding around a column of wire or star pickets and allowing it to go around and around before it goes up higher. Experiences anyone?

I would avoid letting it go to ground. It roots easily. Winding it around a pillar is one way to try to keep it in bounds.

While never having grown the rose I suspect it is too vigorous to be grown as a pillar based on the Adelaide roses seen in gardens.

I had it around a Palm trunk. It worked but replaced it with a repeater.

good idea!

yes, the star picket pillar is only the first step, just buying time until I can put up higher stable trellis

The description says it's prone to mildew. Has anyone seen any, or is this a case of one bad review lingering forever without general validity?
I don't remember seeing any.

Adélaide d'Orléans is one of my absolute favourite roses. Why? Simple - it seems to thrive on neglect and rewards any pampering, doesn't care if it rains (which in the UK does matter alot!), is pretty disease resistant, and the evergreen or near evergreen foliage is attractive. The flowering is profuse and astoundingly beautiful, it is vigorous (mine has scaled 12 feet up a tree and covered it in 18 months with ease), easy to train, and the scent (to me) is medium strong, refind and delicious. What more could I ask? It really should be in every single garden.

I couldn't agree more. It's my fave of all time.
