Teas That Max Out at 7' in Width or Less?
I'm sure microclimate and the quality of the plant to begin with have impact on long term size, but what teas will generally max out around 6.5'-7' in width or less?
As a class that resents pruning, I don't want to force a tea into a slot by regular trimming once mature. I've heard Mrs. Melanie Willermoz is smaller. Safrano is often pictured as a more compact tea. Westside Road Cream Tea is reputedly smaller. Lady Hillingdon apparently can take mild pruning.
What are your experiences with the more modestly sized teas? I'm not looking for truly compact roses, but interested in knowing which teas are generally smaller than the 'B.R. Cant types.'
Perhaps it would also be worthwhile knowing which teas are more vertically inclined than spreading. Aside from the climbing teas that is. I understand that Rosette Delizy would fall in this group?
Coastal, mild zone 10 here. Thanks for your insights.
