Fourth of July™

An explosion of eye-popping color for the landscape is just the beginning of the festivities ahead from this fragrant Climber. You’ll get a bang out of the big sprays of large long-lasting blossoms. And the fireworks just seem to keep coming because it blooms and reblooms readily in the very first season. Sparkling green foliage, superb vigor and good hardiness complete the spectacle. The first Climber to take the coveted AARS award in 23 years. Consistent color & vigor in most climates. Free flowering.
