Dublin Bay

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Charles de Gaulle There are several not very impressive red climbers on the market, but Dublin Bay is not one of them. It is vigorous and covered with healthy foliage. It produces ample numbers of red roses over a long season. The roses are not especially fragrant, but at least the plant produces color reliably; that's the main job of a climber.

Dublin Bay was produced from Altissimo, everyone's other favorite red climber and Bantry Bay, an excellent pink climber with New Dawn as a parent. So this rose has a good pedigree to account for its performance.

ARS members rate it 8.6.
