This is one of the most eye-catching and beautiful of all the striped roses. Large semi-double 4" blooms (petals10-12) of velvety, scarlet-red striped with white. The long lasting blooms are produced in large sprays and are blessed with a spicy/sweet apple fragrance. The vigorous disease-resistant continually blooming plant is clothed with sparkling, deep-green foliage that sets off to perfection the superb blooms. This climber may also be grown as a free standing shrub rose in cooler climates. All of these attributes add up to make "Fourth of July" an outstanding rose.
