A new and distinct variety of Climbing rose plant is provided which
abundantly forms attractive yellow blossoms having a slight fragrance and
the configuration of an old rose. The plant displays good vigor and good
tolerance to diseases, particularly with respect to Black Spot. The
foliage is very dense and semi-glossy, and contrasts nicely with the
blossom coloration. The new variety is particularly well suited for
growing as attractive ornamentation in the landscape where a climping
rose plant is desired.
