Comments It's a solid choice where one wants pale pink flowers to be produced over much of the growing season. The individual flowers are well formed. They are produced in good quantity and with good regularity through the season. It's a matter of some debate how high the climbing sport of Cecile Brunner might climb. Some authorities claim its more than ten or fifteen feet. Some sources show it at six. One person who grows it photographs it at three - although it's possible that the canes are growing horizontally or that it's the non-climbing sport. Sometimes, perhaps, it will need a structure to grow on. But there are places where it can be grown as a shrub to six or eight feet in each direction. And there are places where it covers an eight foot arbor.
