Comments Its many crimson flowers fade quickly to rose. If it is trained on a lattice, it will create a giant wall of color; few red climbers fare better. Though the first flush is by far the most generous, it blooms lightly through much of the summer and into autumn. It grows reasonably well on dense, poor soil. And it produces lovely orange hips in the fall.
