The Dortmund Rose is a beautiful red climber that draws praise almost every day of the growing season. First bred by Kordes, this rose was introduced in the UK in 1955.
The large, single red blooms are recurrent and each petal overlaps its neighbor, giving the impression of a delicate ruffle.
Dortmund’s blossoms are a luminous brilliant red with a touch of white at the center, and they are delightfully fragrant. There is no urgency to cut old bloom as the petals fall cleanly and lovely bunches of bright orange hips form, with the plant still putting out lots of bloom.
Plant this climber in a location where its vigorous canes won’t intrude into walkways. Be prepared for spectacular displays.
