I almost shovel pruned 'Rainforest' last year (2013). It had been planted in a spot that got several hours of afternoon shade and was a one cane wonder after three years. I moved it to a center bed where it gets no afternoon shade and it is covered with blooms this year (2014) and has tripled in size. Since it has only been in that spot for one year, I don't know how large it will grow, but it certainly seems to be a happy rose.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Suntan Beauty'), zuzu wrote:

This rose undergoes an amazing metamorphosis. A cocoa-brown bud opens into a russet-tan bloom with strong mauve overtones. The bloom later fades to gold with russet edges, displaying a wealth of stamens. The petals are crinkled, like silk crepe, in all stages of bloom. The rose is exceptionally difficult to find and even more difficult to grow. It needs perfect soil in the perfect location to thrive. I moved it three times before it stopped looking droopy and started producing blooms.

Overwinters in my zone 5 garden wonderfully. One of the first minis to bloom. Smells WONDERFUL! Very strong fruity fragrance. Adorable little pompom blooms in clusters. Love this teeny rose! The plant itself isn't the smallest, we're talking 2-3' across and about 18-24" tall, but the blooms are about the size of a nickel or smaller.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Christopher Marlowe'), zuzu wrote:

Christopher Marlowe is one of the shortest Austin shrubs in my garden, but it nevertheless stands out in the landscape because the blend of colors in the blooms is sublime. The blooms start out in a vibrant shade of coral-orange with a yellow reverse and then fade to a variety of pink shades. The fragrance is pleasant and not too strong.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Day Breaker'), zuzu wrote:

Day Breaker produces beautiful blooms, but the rose is highly susceptible to damage from pests and diseases in my zone 9 garden. The bush grows quite large here, about 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide, but it is leafless for much of the growing season because of black spot and it is marred by damage from rose slugs, cucumber beetles, and curculio weevils.
