Archiduc Joseph

I'm planning to re-do an area of my garden,in which I have a large plant of Archiduc Joseph, the tea rose. I moved it about two years ago to this spot, due to another garden make-over,but chose the wrong spot. Now, I'm wondering if it's worth my while to move it yet again, or just to shovel prune it. It's a fairly mature plant,but I have never really fallen in love with it. It was very nice for a year or two,lots of flowers (unfortuneately rather spoiled by a beetle invasion),of a nice orangey-pink,but this year the flowers were ugly, an unpleasant russety magenta,for the most part. I realize that the soil in this area is very bad (another reason to move it: so I can work on the soil with greater ease). But is it worth trying to re-establish such a large,mature plant? It's not a rare rose or anything...any opinions to help me decide?

RE: Archiduc Joseph

I bought a band a few months ago and pretty much just put it right in the ground. it is near where the old chicken coop was years ago so guessing that soil has some extra oomph, but it is growing like a weed.
