'Paul's Scarlet Climber' (W. Paul, 1915). This very hardy, cheerful rambler is extremely popular in North America and Europe. It took over from 'Excelsa' as everyone's favourite red climber. The flower is not exactrly scarlet - it may have a hint of that harsh uncompromising colour on opening, but then loses its vividness and turns to cherry red. The flowers are well formed, medium sized (6-7 cm), semi-double, slightly scented, and borne in tremendous profusion in medium-sized clusters all through summer and earely autumn. Sometimes there are a few later flowers. The flowers are quite unaffected by heat or rain. 'Paul's Scarlet Climber' is only moderately vigorous, typically 3 m high, but can be seen growing to much greater height trained round a tall metall cone at L'Haÿ-les-Roses. Richard Vogel, the curator of Sangerhausen, declared in 1923 that "none of the many climbers in our rosarium gives me so much joy as this gloriously coloured rose."
