Plant Patent #11,518. Cultivar name: WEKroalt (Synonyms: Crazy for You and Hanabi) Here is a Rose that has already stood the test ...of time, though it was released just a few years ago! Extensively trialed before introduction, an immediate award winner, and the recipient of praise from gardeners across the country, Fourth of July? receives my highest recommendation as a repeat-blooming, fragrant, colorful Rose! Fourth of July? was introduced in 1999 by master breeder Tom Carruth, and boasts abundant clusters of big, semi-double flowers of deep red striped with clean white. They offer a petal count of 10 to 16 and a rich, enticing fragrance that combines apples with sweet roses -- utterly irresistible! Best of all, they bloom heavily early in the season, then cheerfully repeat all summer. This Rose comes by its good looks and exceptional garden vigor honestly. It is descended from R. Roller Coaster x Altissimo, and underwent 3 years of formal trials before being introduced -- a very long period indeed, but this Rose was special! It promptly won an All-American Rose Award, the first climber in a quarter century to do so. And then the raves began pouring in from the first lucky gardeners to plant this standout beauty! Many experts consider Fourth of July? the best Rose introduced in the past decade. Its climbing canes reach 12 to 14 feet tall, with fresh, healthy foliage. North or south, east or west, it demonstrates uniform vigor and flower color. And it reblooms beginning the very first year in your garden -- highly unusual for any Rose!
