Dublin Bay Rose
Climbing Red Rose
The Dublin Bay Rose is a climbing rose that covers itself with clusters of fragrant, velvety red flowers. This is a great climber with very rich red colored blooms.
The cardinal red flowersof the Dublin Bay rose aren't fussy about climate- hot, cool, or even mild, the repeat flowering on this rose bush is excellent.
It is sensational when planted on a white fence or structure, where those rich red blooms are sure to stand out and get noticed!

Dublin Bay is slow to climb in it's first season. Give it a year to grow, and it will take off and grow to around 10 ft. Mine is covered from Spring until frost with those beautiful velvety blooms. Sometimes they come in clusters, other times single bloosoms. Repeat flowering is very good. Once the flowering begins, it seems to never be without flowers.
The red flowers stand out nicely against the dark green foliage.
The large flowered climber is one of the best reds and most popular on the market today.
A prolific bloomer with quick repeat, and a wonderful fruity scent, makes this one a good choice for anyone wanting a stand-out red climbing rose for their garden.
This rose is also very disease resistant, and cold hardy. Mine grows happily in zone 5 and returns each year.
