SUMMER WINE

{ View Larger Rose Photo }

SUMMER WINE

After Louise's trips to England she often comes home raving about a rose. 'Summer Wine'is one she said we must have in our gardens and to offer our customers. The delicately beautiful, nearly single (8 - 10 petals), flowers provide an airy effect of butterflies. The petals of the lovely buds are a rich apricot-coral shading to gold at the base. They open to become eye-catching blooms with scalloped petals of soft coral-pink enhanced by golden centers with striking red anthers. A wonderful climber, especially for those who love the beauty of single roses. Sally Allison of New Zealand, in her book Climbing and Rambling Roses says 'Summer Wine' is an outstanding climber with beautiful foliage.

Those climbing roses whose names start with 'Climbing' or 'Cl' are sports (genetic mutations of the bush varieties of the same name). They generally have a heavy spring bloom followed by scattered blooms throughout the season. The individual blooms on climbing roses can be of a finer quality and larger than those of the bush form. Climbing roses whose names are not prefaced with ‘Climbing’ or 'Cl' are bred by crossing two roses. They generally have a heavy spring crop followed by a better repeat bloom and usually a good fall crop of blooms with a few exceptions. A few seedling Climbing roses bloom only once and are so noted here. Climbing roses are a diverse group with many different heritages, which makes this a wonderfully useful collection of roses. More climbing roses should be grown as they provide wonderful color in the garden without taking up much ground. Large flowered climbing roses differ from Ramblers in that they have fewer, yet larger blooms (4-6 inches in size) and are not quite as vigorous growers. Being so diverse, they vary in winter hardiness. Generally climbing roses are hardy zones 5 or 6 through 10 except as noted, some with more hardiness as noted.
