CLIMBING ROSE
Hyb Multiflora

This rose is often confused with Veilchenblau. Violette is much deeper in color with slightly more red in its purple coloration. It blooms in large clusters capable of stopping all who pass by with its dramatic show and fragrance during the spring. It is a vigorous climber.
