The first climbing rose of the Explorer series, the vigorous growth makes it ideal for use as a climber. Its fragrant blooms appear in great abundance early in summer and continue until frost in a gamut of shades from orchid-pink to fuchsia-red, all complemented by lustrous soft green foliage. The lovely flowers are followed by attractive hips of orange. This is a wonderful, repeat blooming fully double rose, petal count is 40.

PerfectReview by MissQ
Our 7,000' Grand Mesa garden had this rose in it. It was beautiful and hardy bloomer, climbing up a trellis in a colder corner that caught the wind, but did not seem to mind at all. (Posted on 1/26/2014)
Winter Hardy ClimberReview by Judy Rose
I bought four own-root plants years ago. I put the little things in my yard thinking, 'This can't work.' Today they are vigorous, tall and healthy in my metro Denver garden. They need no winter protection and are first roses to bloom, usually by mid-May. The largest one is huge, at least 12' tall and rather wide (6'?). And I always get lots of compliments.
