Comments It is a sport of New Dawn with twice the petals. In every other way it matches the original; healthy foliage, nice fragrance, repeat flowering, flexible canes for training. As is true of New Dawn it has very large, sharp thorns, is very vigorous and it is very free of disease. In comparison to many large flowered climbers it is generous with its blooms. And in good conditions, a mature plant will repeat.
