The huge, arching frames of Westerland covered hundreds of square feet of the pergola at Berkeley Rose Gardens, but this was the only spray of flowers left.

Westerland is capable of producing many hundreds of flowers each season when trained either as a shrub that can reach eight feet in each direction or as a climber. It is almost immune to fungal disease. And the blossoms are nicely fragrant.

Westerland is rated 8.1 by ARS members. It was bred in the Kordes nurseries which have a history of breeding tough, muscular roses. There is a great-looking yellow sport named Autumn Sunset.
