This is a truly unique climbing rose for cold climates. Above and Beyond™ combines extreme cane hardiness, reliable spring flowering, vigorous growth and a unique color in hardy roses. Orange flower buds open in prolific clusters of five or more apricot colored semi-double to double flowers. Plants bloom in mid-to-late spring with sporadic repeat flowering in summer. With extreme cane hardiness, Above and Beyond™ can be a climber or a nice large free standing shrub in colder regions where plant dieback from cold is not an issue. Very resistant to fungal diseases.
