  • Hips
  • Partial Shade

With long limber canes and a trailing habit, this rose forms an attractive informal shrub but as a climber its beauty really shines. The disease resistant foliage is a dark glossy green tinted with burgundy to complement the large clusters of vivid red flowers. As they cover the plant from early summer until frost, the blooms are brightened by golden stamens and the air is filled with a rich spicy fragrance. The addition of small orange hips at the end of the season just add to our appreciation of this rose.

Beautiful stem of roses

Rose is a beauty. I have enjoyed it for many years. Japanese beetles have shredded the leaves at times recently.

This rose wows the neighborhood! (and me)

I've had this rose for almost 20 years. I got it after seeing it at a friends and fell in love with it. I am in zone 4, and it has come though every winter healthy. I have had some die-back in a couple of especially harsh winters, but I cut out the dead canes, and the rose rapidly regrew. It grows on the side of my small old barn, tied to a trellis made of concrete reinforcing mesh, and let the tips cascade outward. (It pulled down the original trellis, so I put something sturdier up!). The blossoms are amazingly profuse: at full bloom the entire side of my barn looks red! The first bloom is very heavy and long lasting, but on top of that the bush tends to rebloom less profusely through out the summer and even into the fall. Not much scent, but the spectacular bloom makes up for that. Seems to bloom on second year wood, so I cut out old canes each year and encourage new growth for the next year. I so love Henry Kelsey!

Growing rapidly

I'm in Zone 6-7-8-9 depending on whose rating - Roseburg, Oregon. Planted this spring it is growing rapidly; one cane is already 4' tall. No blooms yet. In a shady spot.
