Dancing Sunset

DyersEndDyersEnd Posts: 730
Does anyone grow this rose?  It looks stunning in the photos here http://https//www.styleroses.co.uk/buy-plants/dancing-sunset-climbing-rose  but I'd want to grow 2  inside 6 foot tall obelisks which are (or will be soon) either side of the steps down from the patio into the garden proper and I'm not sure it's the right thing to do.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Oh, the link doesn't work even for me. I'll try posting a picture from the website

    To each his own, but , erm...... "it's not for me" is the kindest thing I can say about it.  ;)

    It looks like the rose named after Harry Wheatcroft, a well known, larger than life, flamboyant Nottingham rose grower.

    If it's actually Harry Wheatcroft in disguise it certainly won't be right for me and I think on reflection I agree with you Hosta, it's a bit 'in your face'. Back to the drawing board. There are some lovely clematis .........

    Whew @DyersEnd
    I hated the thought that I may have offended you. 
    I'm glad you've seen the light. I think it's vile beyond measure.  :D

    I have to agree - I don't like any flower that has that sort of streaking/marking.
    Someone must though - or it wouldn't be for sale!   :D
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
