Description

Bloomfield Courage is a climbing rose bred in 1925 with small single dark velvety red blooms with a white eye. It blooms prolifically in spring in large clusters that cover the foliage. Recurrent blooming can occur in summer and flowers are followed by red hips. The canes can reach 20 feet in length and are nearly thornless.

Use this rose in full sun in moist well-drained soils for verticle spaces as a trellis and fence or for screening.
