A new Polish cultivar abundant in red bloom. Flowers borne in spring are double and semi-double, in summer – single. It thrives in sunny spots.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Medium-sized flowers 12-14 cm across, consist of 8 sepals and 40-80 stamens. They are burgundy, greenish underneath, the sepals are elliptic, with rounded tips. Stamens consist of yellow anthers on yellow filaments and the pistil is also yellow. Double and semi-double flowers appear on previous year shoots and single develop on new growth at 40 cm from the plant’s base. The bloom occurs from May till the end of June, and some flowers may also appear during late summer, in August-September. Leaves are dark green, semi-glossy, both single and compound.
HOW IT GROWS: The vine climbs by means of petioles. Compact habit, moderate growth rate, reaching 1.3-1.5 m height.
WHERE TO PLANT: The cultivar is best suited to sunny locations. Thrives in fertile, permeable soils, but will also grow in moderate soil if fertilized. The soil pH should range from neutral to slightly acidic. Hardy (zone 4-9).
HOW TO PLANT AND GROW: Place the plant in a pit (60 x 60 x 60 cm) with fertile soil and a 10 cm draining layer at the bottom, 5-10 cm deeper than it grew in the container (planting tutorial). It only requires light pruning. At the turn of February and March, it is enough to remove the dead shoots, and prune the live ones moderately: in the first year 30 cm from the ground, above the strong buds, in the second year - 70 cm, and in the following years at the height of 150 cm (pruning tutorial). In mid-April it should be supplemented with a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote 5˗6M). Water during the season.
HOW TO APPLY: Suitable for growing by free-standing supports or those placed by the walls, as well as for growing in containers on terraces and balconies.
