Paul's Scarlet Climber

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose All that Jazz at Colonial Park Rose Garden Monet used this rose at Giverny to "launch color into the sky." This Paul's Scarlet Climber does well. The red is, surprisingly, a very garden-friendly color cavorting with every other saturated color, and even showing of some pastels to advantage.

It blooms but once a year producing a dramatic show for several weeks. It's short enough that it can work on a tall pillar, and tall enough to work on an arch.

The rose is reported to get some mildew, which suggests against placing it against a wall or fence.
