- Comments:A spectacular rose and the first Climber to win the coveted AARS award in 23 years!! Well named, as the large red and white blossoms appear to explode from buds into into open flowers and continue to do so all season long. It even flowers well the first year which is unusual for a rose and the color is always consistent. Large sprays of flowers are long lasting and a single stem makes a full bouquet in a vase. Superb vigor, good hardiness and sparkling foliage complete the assets of this all round winner.
Clusters of sweetly scented, velvety red and white striped blooms and attractive, deep green foliage make this climbing rose a standout.
