my red climber - more information and pix

carversdaughter(z7 NC)May 18, 2007

I have a red rose - said to be a climber - that I cannot name

blooms are red, but the colour in pix is not true, pix show more orange and this red has no orange - it is bright, sort of the colour of a cherry - it is *feel good* red - petals are same colour on reverse side - colour doesn't appear to change much as it ages

there is little to no fragrance

blooms singe, not clustered

I don't know if it repeats or not - last year it had one bloom, very late in the season

it was planted bare root in 2006 and the package said it was 2 years old then

I don't recall seeing the hip from the single bloom last year

as for leaves and leaflet number - I have pix of that in the album

thorns are small, brown and break off fairly easily, with some resistance

cane is green, slender, straight, upright and not what I would call pliable

I believe it is a climber

growth rate would be what I call medium - it doesn't take off but it is growing fairly well

right now it is a single cane almost 5' tall with two new canes coming up at base - new canes start out with bronze foliage

it seems to be fairly resistant to black spot - I have a problem with it on several of my other roses, but not this one

pix include the bloom, cane, leaf, leaflets, bud, stiple, underside of leaf, stamen, flower stem

Iknow the age of the rose because on the wrapper [which I have since lost] said it was a 2 year old, field grown rose.
