Altissimo may be my favorite rose.Review by Norman
I ordered two Altissimo roses from you two years ago. One almost died and you graciously sent me a replacement. It turns out it didn't die and now I have three. I planted them along a south-facing wall and am fanning them out on cables. We see them when we look out the window above the kitchen sink. They provide beautiful large, bright red flowers all summer long. I love the way they brighten up my grey cement block wall. They are very hardy and have very strong vines. The fact that they have viscious thorns is not a concern as they are against the wall. (Posted on 5/1/2017)

spectacular roseReview by rslvr
This climber is truly a winner. It always has. blooms. They last as a cut flower also. Vigorous and upright spreading but needs no supports. (Posted on 4/20/2014)

This rose is all about the unusual show-stopping blooms. They are enormous, velvety red, single blooms featuring a lovely boss of golden yellow stamens. Great color in the garden and very conversational cut rose, this climber is a definite must- have in any garden! Its simply fabulous! (Posted on 4/20/2014)
