I would appreciate more info about this rose. Is it a climber? Or shrub? What would be the finished size?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Temple Musk

If you look on Vintage Gardens web site, it says this rose forms a dense thicket about 6 feet high.


RE: Temple Musk

For us, it is the most compact of the 3 true musk roses. It seldom reaches 4 feet tall (the others will go to 6), and about the same width. Flowers all the time with the most double of the 3 types, and the central petaloids do not "fry" as do those of the regular double musk. In England, the musk roses will climb, but they're never at all climby here, even on 'Fortuniana' roots.

RE: Temple Musk

Thank you. Very helpful and I am so glad it is smaller.

Malcolm -- You need "Roseville Noisette." It's a dwarf. :-)
