One of my favorites is "Coral Cove". This is a rose from the "Easy Elegance" series that was introduced by Bailey Nurseries. I have found this rose to be very disease resistant and I love the glossy green leaves. Not to mention the color of the blooms!
"Coral Cove" has gotten much larger than I anticipated but I have found this to be the norm when reading rose labels. Ours is easily 5 ft. tall but it is advertised to get only 2.5 - 3 feet. It blooms like a maniac and sometimes the flower branches flop over after rain. Still, there is much to admire about this rose.
Another rose in the "Easy Elegance" series is "Champagne Wishes" and I've been impressed with it as well. It got too large for the spot I put it in (in all fairness, the label does say 3-4 ft. tall). I wanted a low growing rose and find that this one is out of proportion. I plan to move it to another location.
Sometimes plant sizes vary according to where you are located. In Alabama, the polyantha rose 'Marie Pavie' stayed at a modest 3 feet. It was a favorite of mine and I bought it again after moving to Washington. Here is quickly grew to a 5 x 6' shrub.
Another favorite that we grew in the previous garden - 'Marjorie Fair' aka 'Red Ballerina'. This is a hybrid musk rose that gets rather large - about 5' x 8'.
And the largest of them all is 'Buff Beauty', over 5 ft. tall and 8 or more feet in width. This one can be grown as a climber, which I've never done, but now wish I had.
I discovered 'Chinatown' at Joy Creek Nursery. It is a beautiful yellow rose.
