Espaliered Tea Rose
Got a wild idea to try espaliering a non-climbing tea rose (Mrs. Dudley Cross) on an east facing wall. Has anyone done this? I know I've seen fruit trees, camellias, climbing roses and other plants espaliered but never a tea rose. I even have a tea noisette (Celine Forestier) espaliered and it does very well but can get out of hand in the summer. I know it would be labor intensive and maybe futile but, what the heck, I'll try anything once.
BTW, the reasons I'd like to use MDC is that I already have one in a pot and it's practically thornless.
Thanks for any input.
