China Native - introduced to Britain in 1817 by Charles Greville
Bears clusters of profuse red blooms. Usually grown on walls or trellis' or fences (does very well along fences)
Abundant blooms in Spring, intermittently through Summer & abundantly blooms again in Autumn + heavy double blooms
Note: Blooms are produced on old wood which means that this year’s flower buds were formed last year. If you prune new, green growth - you will be cutting off your buds for this year's flowers. Do not prune prior to blooming. Remove dead or diseased canes. Remove dead leaves, branches or other brush from under your bush.
