First year bloom in May 2004. Planted this vine in Sept 2003.
Not the best flower... but the first I've seen since I bought it.
Moved to new property 11/06, struggled during '07 but is back and vigorous in May '08 (Rose is 'Altissimo' Climber)
At Healdsburg Nursery.
Heighley Gate, Northumberland
My 'Arctic Queen,' which is wonderful and blooms very heavily, but tends to stary rather short. It's still one of my favorites! This was taken in early July in Northern WI.
