Weeks Roses Logo
Yowzer…a whole new color in Climbers! Imagine Weeks’ famous Fourth of July rose in shades of purple. Although they’re distantly related, this kissin’ cousin blooms in even larger, more pyramid-shaped clusters of flowers & doesn’t have nearly the thorns. Set these splashy colors against bright Granny Smith-green foliage & you’ve got a killer combo for any fence, wall or trellis. Vigorous, clean & free-flowering…it repeat blooms readily in the very first year.
