The Climbing Polyantha, Red Explorer, a sport of 'Edith Cavell', is vigorous and you can almost always find a cluster of blooms on it. It is one of the rambler type that does not mildew, and I think replaces the old 'Crimson Rambler'.

CRIMSON RAMBLER. Japanese variety introduced by C. Turner in 1893. Although displaced by Excelsa in many gardens, this Multiflora is a superior rose. It has much better brilliant red flowers in larger and handsome trusses. Best grown as a big shrub away from walls, otherwise it will suffer from mildew and rust.
