Release notes:
Using the breakthrough color breeding of Mrs. Simpson of New Zealand, Meilland developed this very unique tobacco brown climber. It successfully recreates in the garden the strong brown colors developed for florist roses. Unfortunately, it will only perform its best in the forgiving climates of California, and is not recommended in areas where roses require a lot of tender loving care.
