    I have a friend who has this in her garden and it was just out in flower last week.Not sure how long it blooms for though.

    It is a gorgeous rose which flowers in June/July ............. however it's a vast beautiful beast of a thing growing to 6m high and 5 across, really only to be considered if you have a large (and I mean large) garden with a huge wall or venerable apple tree for it to climb

    I SUPPOSE IT DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE. 

    I AM 600 FEET UP IN DERBYSHIRE AND MINE IS STILL IN BUD. MAYBE FLOWERING IN 10 DAYS IF IT STOPS ACTING LIKE WINTER.

    NOT A ROSE FOR SMALL GARDENS. MINE IS AT THE TOP OF A THIRTY FOOT HIGH PEAR TREE. ITS FLOWERS LAST FOR MAYBE A COUPLE OF WEEKS, AT ITS BEST FOR A WEEK.

    A POOR RETURN FOR THE SPACE IT TAKES UP IF SPACE IS AT A PREMIUM.

    Thank you . I have a couple of places I could put it . I would just love me to know if the flowers last all summer.

    This rose flowers a little later so looking at July to around September depending on your area.

    Deadhead and yearly pruning hard over the winter/early spring months keeps the stems fresh which means more shoots and more flowers and less likely a leggy rose with flowers only at the ends.

    No, definitely only 2 to 3 weeks and then you'll get hips in late summer/autumn.   If you want perfumed, simple white flowers over the summer you need a repeat flowering rambler such as Snowgoose from David Austin but it only gets to 8' or they have a pale pink one - The Lady of the Lake which gets to 12' or Malvern Hills which is pale yellow and gets to 10' or so.

    I planted mine end of 2015. It is begining to get very large and has flowered. I am still able to direct

    the shoots around to cover the leylandii stumps behind then it will be out of my control.
