Gardeners' Notes:

Big and georgous, blooms only in spring for me but I keep it cut back so it doesn't go much highter than my fence, think the flowers are on new growth. Have trouble with aphids(?) or some instect and have to spray it or the leaves go brown and fall off. Still not sure it's not also getting a fungus as I have lots of trouble with that on other plants. Still I love it as it blocks the neighbors pool through my lattice topped fence. Has no fragrance but I think the orange color makes up for it.

I planted this last Summer. It grew quickly and looked beautiful, but when it flowered there was absolutely no fragrance. It's already starting to get leaves in early April, and I'm hoping that it just needed to establish itself before it becomes fragrant. Otherwise, I'll be ripping it out and replacing it with a Sweet Sue.
