Silver Moon - Ouch !!
Silver Moon, aka "Cat o' Nine Tails" just finished a beautiful spring flush. Her flowers are just wonderful. Just two feet tall last year when I planted her, she is now basically a 12 foot tall kraken. I have her contained in an arbor for now, but I don't know if I have the talent to tame her. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I suppose I could don a full length fur coat and gloves and try to move her (shudder) but I like where she is. The problem is in how dense she is and getting the long new canes to grow up and over the existing plant. Can she be aggressively thinned?
To move her she would end up with some shade.
For those of you that have see it, her beautiful Momma at Roses Unlimited succummed to disease and was removed :^(.
