Breeder's notes:
My bred-for-Florida Wichuraiana Climber 'Gainesville Garnet' continues to deepen in color at 18 months of age from the original hybrid seed I bred in the winter of 2004. It is almost always in bloom, is virtually disease free, has rampant growth, and is an easy-to-train climber. My only complaint continues to be what I consider a lack of scent though many visitors insist it smells wonderful. I think my nose was "spoiled" by the INCREDIBLY potent Old Roses I grew in Denver and that I studied for 12 years at Fairmount Cemetery there. But since Florida has NO reliable truly climbing red climbers that thrive here I am very pleased and proud of this hybrid of mine and am glad it is in commercial testing at Ashdown! I hope you enjoy this new photo of fall blossoms with richer color and higher petal count now that the autumn cool down is established here. It is a "bastard seedling"...I know who the mother was but not the Dad as the tag and hip got separated from each other.
