This little one is an off spring of it's parent that has been in our garden for 30+ years too Chico2.

Years ago, I learned how to proprogate climbers successfully and have kept the very old ones alive through their offspring. :)

It pulled through the winter and hope it continues to thrive. :fingerscr

There's still plenty of buds to come yet. I was so happy to see it's progress so far and had hoped it would be as beautiful as it's mother.

Pictures of mother rose to come probably by week's end. :thumbs up
