Common Name(s):

Phonetic Spelling

Description

Rosa 'Meg' is a climbing rose with a strong fragrance.  It typically grows to a height of 12' with stiff stems.  Its showy apricot blended blooms are semi-double and make an excellent cut flower.  It will bloom in late spring to early summer and blooms repeatedly.  It can be grown as a shrub or trained to climb.  Blooms form on old wood, so prune after flowering is done for the season.
