Default Lady Banks rose evergreen?

Hi all,

Is this rose truly evergreen? I've never heard of an evergreen rose, but the
Monrovia website seems to indicate that it is. Anyone have any of these?

Thanks,

Ours seems to be. It gets a little thin in winter but never lost down
to thorns. It has been really spectacular for the past two weeks.
Think the rainy week hurt it some.

We built an arbor and have one at each end. It will be fully covered by
the end of the summer. This thing is only slightly behind kudzu and
wysteria in growth though.

I would agree with wes -

Not thick in evergreen like a hedge although mine does not get full full
sun, which probably would thicken it up

It does grow quite a bit in the spring so give it room to roam.

5-10 foot canes in some cases. Some are viney like a rose, but others
just take off like a fishing pole. Also remember it blooms on last years
growth so prune right after it blooms and only the occassional wild cane
after that.

I also have an arbor that I will be growing the Lady Banks on. How big is
your arbor? Mine is 8'h x 4'w x 4'd. Should I plant it so the roots are in
shade or sun? Should I plant one on either side, do you think? Thanks.

The arbor is 18x10 with the 4 posts at 14x7 feet with one plant at each
end. I don't think it matters much one now gets a lot more shade than
the other since one is northeast of the other. The
sunnier one gets about 8 hours of sun. I don't think it
matters much where the roots are.

I just took a roll of film of it and selected the option to get them put
online so if it works I will see if I can make a few jpegs available.

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the photos. Sounds like I only need one
plant for my smaller arbor. E.
