I purchased Milkmaid from Vintage this past winter and planted in the ground, as band. The plant has taken off like crazy; I've never seen a band grow so quickly. It is planted near a trellis and the canes are 4 to 5 feet long. Also, there are numerous canes growing,. This is going to be a big one, that's for sure. It is funny how some roses just explode in growth and others creep along. Don't think I've planted a band that has grown this vigorous so quickly.
Any experiences with Milkmaid you'd like to share. I know it is not a common rose.
