Night Owl™

Imagine a dark wine-purple version of Sally Holmes blinking with bright yellow stamens. The clusters of showy sweetly fragrant blossoms come on quickly, are very long-lived and hold that dramatic deep claret color to the very end. Repeat flowering readily in the very first season, this vigorous beauty sends out long canes covered with clean grey-green leaves. Repeats readily. Very vigorous grower.
