‘Breath of Life’/Harquanne: Grimpant à grandes fleurs. Son teint d’abricot se colore de rose avec l’âge… toujours pleine… coeur turbiné, puis évase en coupe sa corolle délicatement ondulée… excelle en vase… parfumée, de bonne tenue et conserve longtemps son coloris… mieux vaut supprimer les fleurs fanées, grâce à quoi la floraison se renouvellera de juin aux gelées sur fond de feuillage vert franc. Vigoureux, mais un peu raide, ce sarmenteux est à palisser au fil de sa croissance, avant que ses longs rameaux ne perdent leur souplesse. Son nom, “souffle de vie”, lui a été donné par le collège royal des sages-femmes britanniques. Harkness, Royaume-Uni, 1982.
