Need Large Thorny Rose
The neighbor who lives near the entrance to my property has been there for a number of years. His son is now grown and seems to be sliding into alcoholism. There are many parties which involve a large bonfire, and "guests" have begun parking across my property line. Beer cans are tossed wherever they land, and an assortment of trash greets me every time I go out. I think eventually the parents will wise up and kick the
the nonworking son out of the nest.
In the meantime, I'd like to restrict the party to THEIR property.
I need a very large, very hardy, very thorny, NASTY but beautiful rose bush. I do have several OGR's planted up there, but I need a monster that will stop a truck!
This needs to be hardy in zone 5. The area receives some good sun, also some shade. The other roses bloom, but somewhat meagerly. I'd sacrifice lots of blooms in this case for very long thorns! Depending on size, I would need 2-5 bushes.
Thanks in advance for your input,
