||Extremely vigorous climber, capable of growing 20 feet in one season.
Produces large numbers of small, pale-pink blossoms fading to white. Blooms
initially in early summer and repeats into fall. A true climbing
rose, a climbing cultivar of the traditional Cecile Brunner.
This plant was attacked by aphids in May 1999 shortly after planting,
and refused to grow at all for several months. The aphid problem was eventually
solved with Orthene (pyrethrin was totally ineffectual). The plant grew
to a height of 15 feet in the fall and produced one flower. This
year it bloomed respectably, but not abundantly. (Photo May 2000). The
goal is to cover the pergola with a mound of foliage.
