Plant of the Week

Rosa Dublin Bay:

 Dublin Bay is probably one of the best red climbing roses I know.  I got this plant in several years ago and after a difficult start it gave us its first real display this year.  Its petals are pure Valentines Day red and it has a really long flowering season, coming in two flushes.  To see this last, slightly confused flower open at the end of December is so uplifting, as though the plant is shaking its fist at the incoming winter.
