Despite its lack of fragrance, this Kordes climbing floribunda deserves a place in any garden and has been popular for more than 25 years. It grows quite tall, but takes up little space as it remains upright, so it's a good candidate for training as a pillar rose. The blooms start out white with a pink edge and gradually darken to carmine.
