This rose was a hand me down from a neighbor's garden and I am somewhat new to roses. I had a couple of questions as there is some conflicting information online...
For those of you who have this rose or know of it well, is it a repeat bloomer and one time bloomer?
Also, the rose came with small wooden teepee for it support the canes, it was kept in by the old owner. I'm having a hard time removing it, it is okay to leave it in as a positioners or would it be best to take it out to stretch out the canes? The teepee is about 4 ft tall. Some of the canes are already about 12ft long.
Lastly, what is your opinion on this rose? I have it growing on the fence and it will grow up a 30ft long perogola along my patio. Since it's such a prominent spot I would like something I love vs just being okay and it underperformed in flowering this summer (but was first year in my yard).
Maybe one more question, any suggestions on a companion plant for the pergola? it doesn't have to be another rose but I considered Eden, as well as the early clematis bloomer Montana or Star jasmine (to add some year round privacy)
