Photo of Rose Fourth of July

Red and white striped roses have become the rage. And they all have patriotic names like Fourth of July and Stars and Stripes. I am generally not fond of them.

This climber won the AARS award in 1999 and is rated 8.0 by ARS members. It appears to be well foliaged and relatively resistant to disease. And in this particular lighting, it actually looks good.
