Rosa Le Vesuve

Does anyone have any experience of this China rose and if so would you recommend it? I don’t have a large garden so every Rose I buy takes the place of another potential one! TIA

    I'm not sure I'd recommend it...  it will grow larger than stated, about 4 tall by 6 wide in time.. and the reason why I'd be reluctant to recommend is because it's very thorny, big thorns on angular canes that fly out diagonally....  it's a wide spreading bush, that needs careful placing in the garden..

    ..I lost my photos of it and only have 1 left, which is hardly worth posting..  the blooms are beautiful especially in bud, just as they are opening, rather exquisite, blush pink and veined.. they open out to reveal stamens..

    Ah, thank you Malorena, I will certainly take your advice on giving this one a miss. Many thanks
