I bought Joseph's Coat from Jackson & Perkins Feb. 1995 and the second one at Home Depot March 2005.
Red buds open in to orange blossoms that change to yellow, then crimson. With blooms in all stages at once, the effect is breathtaking, a snappy, colorful garden generated by a single plant. Blooms continously throughout the summer. A versatile, vigorous rose, well-suited to a pillar or trellis, yet manageable enough to be a self-supporting shrub. Or plant a row along a tall fence or wall for a blazing show of colors everyone will admire.
January 2006- Joseph's Coat is my favorite climber now, she does put on as good of a show as advertised. I have her between two windows so I can watch the colors change. I started training it or should I say tacking it to the walls over my craft room window so it will drape down with blooms. We'll see.
