"New Dawn" is classified as a "climber". This bush is only 2 years old, and the canes are at least 15 feet long already. I have done little since putting it in the ground, and unruly canes are pruned via riding lawn mower as the fella zips by sometimes cursing when the canes fight back.
All good climbers have good thorns for grip.
I've heard climbers can grow up through trees and toy with the idea of securing to the telephone post near the bush. I'm pretty sure it would reach the top is the only reason I nixed that idea.
I consider this the first "established" year for New Dawn and wonder if she will live up to her reputation of a continuous display of re-blooming till fall. That will be a welcome sight in the heat of August. We'll see....
And given time, might one day look like this beauty adorning a rooftop in Tennessee.
