I just purchased Pinstripe from Heirloom Roses. Can anyone tell me how big to expect this one to get. The rooted cutting is a alot shorter than the Bees Knees and Ruby Baby that I purchased along with it. I plan to use it as an accent in a decorative container on my front steps. Please tell me what you know about this one. How prolific, how tall,bushy, etc.

I find it grows to a maximum of 18" in average conditions.

I ordered Pinstripe from Johns last year. Before that spindly little twig showed up I happened upon a nice little pot of one at (of all places) Lowes. That little twig from Johns has yet to catch up with the one from Lowes. Both are low growing (under a foot I think), and last year were almost always in bloom. Too new to say how large they will be, and since mine are potted they may never reach their full growth potential. I've had a rather bad time with P.M. this spring, but Pinstripe has resisted it and B.S. as well. In early spring the weather is so erratic that it's hard to maintain a regular spray schedule, so some roses can become infected before the weather stabilizes, and I can begin my regular spray schedule. After only a full year of growing Pinstripe it's too new in my garden to say if it will be a long term keeper, but I was impressed with it in it's first year.
