'Moonlight' shrub rose
I am about to put in a few rosa Moonlight. Some sites say these roses are particularly thorny and throw out very long trusses. Could those members who grow Moonlight tell me of their experience? I've been longing for this plant for years. Do the flowers die back well or make a big, browning mess (as white flowers often can)? I am planning to put in potted roses rather than bare root.
I understand it is a hydrid musk with a medium scent; attractive to bees; cream to soft yellow; floriferous with a long season of flower; and that it is a tall and upright shrub that can act as a climber/ rambler / tall hedge. The latter is what I am hoping for - a plant to clamber over a new fence in good sun - west facing.
