Is Laguna a repeat bloomer?

My friend has a Laguna rose. Her friends have very young Laguna�s so they don�t know if this rose is indeed a once-bloomer. Does anyone have a mature Laguna and can let us know if this is a once-bloomer or repeat bloomer�. So far her friends say their young ones only bloom once. Thank You very much for any info you can give us...

All three of the Lagunas on HMF are hybrid teas or a climber and should be repeat bloomers. Do you know which ones your friends have?

Kordes Laguna climber repeats well fo me now. (4 year old) It did not repeat in its first year. Needs good watering in summer to repeat well in my experience.

I think my Kordes Laguna Climber is 5-6 years old - it repeats really well. It was a bit stingy the first year - but many climbers do take some time to build up - I am sure it will become better over the years as it grows up.

Summer growth can be vicious. Haven't had rebloom to speak of, but I have to keep whacking to keep it from overwhelming everything else.

This is good to hear, since it is reputed hardy, disease resistant, and fragrant, but early reports said little repeat. If had a place for a big climber, this would be it.

Um, mine are mostly once bloomers, though one of them I hacked back and it immediately put out another flush of bloom, so perhaps a slightly harder dead-heading than I have been doing is the key to rebloom. Since they are huge, a whack-back is in order anyway.

The prickles are nasty. Gloves and goggles required at all times! She likes her fertilizer generous.

Same as mine. I have Laguna for 2 years and this rose still hasn't repeat for me. Last year, I even wrapped the canes horizontally (surprisingly they are very flexible) but no sign of repeat. Hopefully by November it will do well. I find the colour to be too vibrant to my taste (I don't even like red roses) and the blooms always hang down like a fushia plant.
