TROPICAL LIGHTNING

Climbing Rose

WOW! Or if you prefer FANTASTIC! Those are words describing Tropical Lightning's one-of-a-kind flower.

  • Suitable for zones 6 - 9
  • Good disease resistance
  • Bi-color blooms

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

  There is really no other rose in the world that comes close to this extraordinary color blend. The tropical warmth comes in the form of rich sunset-like orange while the dazzling lightning is generated by bright cream stripes. The effect is accentuated by a layer of purple smoke creating a burnt orange combo, perfect for a stormy sky! If you are still in doubt that such colors exist, don't wait to be struck by lightning to plant this amazing Climber! 

GROWTH HABIT

 Each perfectly shaped bud and flower will hold that CRAZY novel color for days and the prolific and vigorous plant, which reaches mature size and full display in 3 years, will only slow down the flowering as it transitions into winter. If the extraordinary bloom colors were not enough, Tropical Lightning presents some of the glossiest leaves of all roses. Add the dark burgundy red coloration of the new shoots and we will all wish for an endless tropical storm!
