New and Improved Blaze Climbing Rose

'
The new and improved climbing 'Blaze' Rose is one of the more reliable, prolific red climbing roses you can grow in your garden.
It has generous clusters of intense red blooms set against dark green, leathery foliage.  These semidouble flowers hold their color even on the hottest summer days.  They appear profusely on old and new wood well into the fall.
Climbing Roses throw long canes that can be trained up posts, arbors, and walls, providing a vertical design element or a beautiful backdrop for the mixed border.  The canes can be tied horizontally along fences.
The Improved Blaze Rose can grow 12'-14' and bloom very heavy in June then continue intermittently all summer with another heavy bloom in the early fall.  Hardy zones 4/5-10.
This landscape architecture project is located in Palisades, New York.
