Weeping rose for hanging baskets?

Hi, I would like to have some weeping roses to put in a couple hanging baskets. I have a Sweet Chariot in a big pot but would love something different in some hanging baskets. The only color I don't like is red. Thanks, Judy

Ha ha, I was going to suggest Sweet Chariot, then Red Cascade... I had to think harder and came up with Dancing Flame. Mine is very beautiful but very young, looks like it's going to be kind of drapey. Good luck!

My favorite is nostalgia. I have 2 in hanging baskets.

Once Dancing Flame is established, it grows quite upright. It is not a good candidate for a hanging basket.

One that used to be recommended for hanging baskets, but now is very hard to find is Swinger. It has yellow blooms and is very nice. I don't know why it is so hard to find.
