I'm in SW Missouri, zone 6, and have one from Pickering grafted onto multiflora. In its second spring it put out about a dozen gorgeous blooms and about half a dozen canes shot up to 5 feet. Very little blackspot in my no-spray garden. I didn't amend the hole when I planted.

This winter it got down to 10 below so will update later this spring.

Update: Lost all but a couple of canes, but many more grew over the season.

Update spring 2012: Very mild winter and all canes survived. I've decided this rose is borderline tender in my zone 6 garden but worth it.

I particularly chose this rose for its colouring, but its growth habit has become almost wild. It is only about 3 years old, was pruned heavily last July (I am in Australia), and now has about 20 stems, each at least 4-5 feet long - but no flowers! Does anyone have any ideas?

Many vigorous roses will make growth at the expense of making flowers, as there is no energy left over to grow and also produce flowers. Pruning will activate new growth in a rose plant so not pruning as hard and not giving the bush any fertilizer should make it bloom.

Mine is a big climber -I already discussed it on the Web- about 10 feet in a tree, with
partial shade.
Two years ago the tree died.
Deprived of the tree's foliage protection, the rose lost its vigor and is now a bush, while
its cuttings grow happily in others trees.
For rebloom you have to wait some years, like with any other HPs -and indeed climbing
Hybrid Teas as well-. After five years you may expect good results.
