Interesting Notes:

I confess, I'm a fool when it comes to sturdy workaholic roses. You know, those tough hardy no-nonsense bloom-machines that resist disease like cast-iron, and perform like Olympic athletes all summer. The ones that never scream for me to go outdoors in the sweltering heat and humidity, battling my way through swarms of voracious mosquitoes and armies of vindictive fire ants and 150 mph winds in order to fuss over them. This sunny yellow climber is every bit as stalwart and independent as its parent, the landscape shrub rose 'Carefree Sunshine' (which was bred by William Radler, the same heroic hybridizer who brought us the indomitable 'Knock Out'). As an added bonus, 'Climbing Carefree Sunshine' produces an abundance of beautiful sexy zaftig rose hips every fall. Lock the door, and pass the iced tea and pralines: the fittest will survive just fine out there without me! This delicious new rose is hybridizer Ping Lim's third AARS winner in five years, and it certainly looks good enough to eat with a spoon. Dr. Leda 2005
