Souviner de brod/ Erinnerung an Brod

Does anyone grow this rose? If you do what's it like? Growth, does anyone grow it in alot of shade or full sun? Is the growth easy to control or better for a big spot? Any information would be extremely welcome as well as pictures, Thanks in advance!

I have this rose in my garden and it grows to about 6 feet tall in sandy soil and it then bends over with the weight of the flowers. The canes do have loads of bigger than normal thorns. I keep mine pruned out in the center so the thorns don't damage newer canes. Once blooming ,but for a longer than usual for an OGR. The fragrance to me is pleasant but not strong. It is one of my favourite OGRs you just beat the color and the shading of the flowers.

I forgot to mention that I grow mine in morning sun and then part shade all day.It would do okay with 4 hours of full sun and then shade all day. The shading of this rose is beautiful but this is a colour which will burn in hot sunshine.

Lynnette, the color of your E an Brod is just stunning with its rich shading of purple tones. I've wanted it for several years, but space limitations probably make that impossible. How wide does your rose grow? Diane

It is typical growth of many of Geschwind roses. Has good vigor and so grows like a climber if you don't get mad with clippers. Mine is about 4 feet in width. It is one of the few OGRs that doesn't complain about being rained on.
