These Canadian bred roses have a very attractive, old-fashioned look to them. They open in a very bright pink color, than fade to a lighter pink with age.

These climbing roses are dense, and can grow to around 10 feet. They are great used for a pillar, post, or as a small climber.
The interesting foliage is red at first, then turns a bright glossy green. The bush has a natural trailing habit, and doesn't require much in the way of pruning.
It has very good disease resistance (another plus)!
The large flower heads are a medium pink color with cream/yellow at the base. As they fully open, you can see the lovely golden base.They remind me of old garden roses.
When the bush is in full bloom in June, you'll see a cloud of pink blooms!
