I have this one, too, Karen! It was the first open rose I bought having previously been a lover of the more blousey types. Now I'm always on the lookout for the open ones! @Patiorose

Thats amazing @jacaranda..I am exactly the same. In my first two gardens I was only interested in really blosey ones, but when we moved here I made a special effort to get open, single type roses. I have quite a few now and they are so much more romantic than the big heavy flowers aren't they. Often seem to be a lot healthier too. I suppose they are more closely related to species roses. 🌹🌹🌹

Hi @suzyw yes, in full sun here. I have Iceberg in part shade, and Princess of Wales too. They are both doing well. I had A Shropshire Lad in shade and it did well there. Souvenir du Dr. Jamain does well in shade, as does Alberic Barbier. But if Jaqueline is a suggested bariety...go for it!

My back garden is north facing Suzy. Its planted with white flowers for the evening light. In winter it gets no sun at all, but in summer its very sunny. There are loads of lovely plants that thrive in it, but everything grows slower and flowers later. And the ones that need a bit of care go up against the wall. I use a lot of pots too, so I can move things in to the sun, and out of the wind. I do have a lot of ferns, hostas and heucheras out there, but loads of other things too. 😀👍

Well I can grow roses in it no problem, and I have aquilegias, poppies, sambubus, lilac, flowering currant, a white sun-rose, so you will find many things will work..just be careful where you place things as some plants need several hours of sunlight to do well...haw haw..not getting any here right now!

Actually saw the light evening tonight for the first time since before the solstice I think! It was freezing though.
