Re: Re: roses

It is planted on the south side of the well-limbed-up tree where it
could get some good sun when it was young. It traveled up the tree and
out onto the southern branches to reach the light and then cascades out
over the Maple leaves, blooming only once. Part of it has also gone to
the east and the cascades come down under the tree's canopy, but still
do bloom. So, yes, I guess it can take some shade. However, here in Zone
5, there's a certain amount of dieback as with any rose and trimming it
up in the tree can be difficult. That's one of the reasons I bought the
telescoping pruner. Training it was sticky as the canes would rather
lean south toward the sun rather than north to the tree.

Is it very fragrant, Kitty?  If it is growing up a tree, sounds like
it might take a bit of shade?
