SUBURBAN GARDEN WITH 'DORTMUND' ROSE

This is a quiet street in Northcote, an inner Melbourne suburb. Most houses have both front and back yards and they are generally well looked after. This stunning rose bush invited photography!

Rosa 'Dortmund' is an upright, Kordesii climbing rose producing showy clusters of flat, single, red flowers with a white eye and dense glossy, dark green leaves. Dortmund has all the great qualities of the Kordes style: health, vigour, and clear elegant lines. The lovely ruffled blooms, of a cheery red with a large white eye occur in large clusters further set off by the glossy dark green foliage. It is impossible not to notice this rose when it is in bloom. Introduced in 1955.
