Blood Red roses are not common in the rose world, let alone climbers, however, Altissimo bears the deepest of scarlets in a large almost single bloom with contrasting gold stamens.
They possess little fragrance, but are much admired for their colour, which holds true with age.
Altissimo is not a huge grower, so arches, walls or pergolas can be safely covered with this rose. repeats well through Summer and Autumn.
3.5 metres high x 2 metres wide.
Bred by Delbord-Chabert of France
and released in 1967.
