The is tolerant of part shade. It is susceptible to mildew. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you’ll probably find you’ll have to prune a little more than that. Prune lightly until this rose gets established (about two years), then prune it back by about a third.
