The year 2011 was a violent weather year in the US, with at least 12 weather-related disasters exceeding a billion dollars in damage. Some say it was Earth's most extreme weather year since 1816. Much of the country suffered from record heat and drought . . . and so did the yards and gardens.

Susceptible to black spot in humid summer weather here in Tennessee. Tolerant of varied soil conditions and wet soil as well as fairly good drought tolerance. A strong climber once established. Blooms tend to bleach out to a very pale pink with long periods in the intense sun but still very pretty.

There are at least two 'Climbing Cecile Brunner' roses. One clone is pretty much a once-bloomer, while the other reblooms throughout the growing season.

I'm curious if the reblooming clone is as much of a monster as the once-bloomer. I would expect not, since the energy used to keep blooming ought to check plant growth somewhat. I don't have good evidence to back up that supposition, however.

My own reblooming 'Climbing Cecile' is not a monster, but it is planted in a difficult spot...
