Guinea is a large flowered Climbing Rose with the darkest black-red roses of all the climbing roses available.
Bred by Mallerin, France, 1938 this rose is a spectacle to behold when it is one of the very first roses to herald the arrival of Spring – being a climbing rose makes it’s arrival so much more spectacular because it is often hard to see any foliage because the flowering is so intense.
Guinea grows vigorously with strong, stiff canes which can be easily managed if you wish to espalier against a wall or frame. The foliage is leathery and dark green which aids in the disease resistant hardiness – especially if planted on a north-facing wall where it will get lots of heat and continue to flower throughout the season.
The long stemmed roses which Guinea so graciously continues to deliver are suitable for the vase and the perfume is delightful when the blooms are warm.
