Does anyone out there grow this climber? What are your impressions of it? I'm thinking about getting it, but there are so many other options,so any comments would be appreciated...thanks,bart
Hi Bart, I grow MoK. I like her a lot! It blooms relatively late in the season. Mine has not yet opened, but the buds are showing color. Just to give you a reference, my Super Dorothys, another late one, ARE in bloom. Big magnificent clusters of smallish flowers that cover the plant. Good bloom through the season, good health. The color is beautiful, and goes perfectly with deeper pinks (I have mine growing with Capt. Samuel Holland). Mine is maybe 9 ft tall, but very wide and spreading. I give it a thumbs up!
Thanks, this is very helpful...especially the bloom-time thing,an essential point to know when it comes to placement, etc.My problem this year is that there are so many pink climbers that I want to try, and for once I'd like to not over-extend myself,i.e.,ordering lots of roses for which I don't even have a clear idea where to place! cheers, bart
I like mine a lot, too. Large sprays of delicately colored small flowers, nice fragrance. Highly recommend this one.
ooh,thanks for the photo! The ones on HMF are confusing, showing very, very different colours...
...by the way,dark_ lady in Virginia, when does Maid of Kent open it's blooms in your garden?After Super Dorothy,as in frances'? thanks, bart
What a beautiful rose. This is the first time I've heard of it. How is the repeat bloom, since it blooms later in the season.
