One of my all-time favorites! Blooms are perfect and last a long time once cut. Not a real fragrant rose but the beauty of it is phenomenal. Worth getting.

I have been thrilled with this climber. I have it on an arbor and though even after 2 years it has not made it over the arbor, it flowers well. The blooms are an odd but beautful shade of deep pink, on the red side. The blooms are huge and it blooms well for me all summer long.

This is one of my favorite roses! This spring the flowers are 5 in across, just beautiful. It's blooming like crazy w/ a moderate fragrance and big full blooms. The bush is disease free, it doesnt like to be sprayed. It didnt die back at all this past winter. I would highly recommend this never talked about rose!
