'Fourth of July' Roses

This rose is one of my favorite varieties - there's a gorgeous example at the memorial rose garden near downtown Littleton. If this site is accurate, I shouldn't have much trouble making one of these grow in my yard.

I've been thinking about getting one. Showed the roommate this picture and she was enthusiastic, too. Not sure what she will say if I point out how much space it's likely to take up and suggest we pull out the equally vigorous (but not very pretty) rose bush that currently takes over our front yard each summer. I don't think we have room for both of them.
