The Recent Horvath Climbers
R. E. Shepherd, Medina, Ohio
Doubloons is well known, and no description of flower or habit should be necessary. If, as recorded, it is a combination of a Setigera seedling and an Austrian Copper seedling it is apparent that the hardiness of these two species has been lost by dilution as Doubloons is not dependably hardy in northern Ohio. Following a mild winter it is a sight to behold, but, unfortunately, our winters are usually quite severe.
