The Therese Bugnet Rose will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type. Placing the Therese rose in front of a taller dark background such as lilacs, spruce, pine or fir shelterbelt will provide contrast to the Therese Bugnet's flowers, fall leaves and rose hips. It also makes an wonderfully beautiful but completely impenetrable hedge.
