As one of the most popular roses available in the Bay Area, Rosa ‘Cécile Brunner’ is a light pink polyantha climbing rose. It can grow as tall as 25′ with proper support. In spring, lightly fragrant, pink, pom-pom-like flowers appear in mass as the vine blooms profusely. The pink blossom color fades from the outside with age, resulting in pale pink edges with yellow undertones and a deeper pink center. This vigorously growing vine features smooth, green leaves and is very disease resistant. It also tolerates some shade, poor soil, and is quite hardy in winter. It prefers full sun with moderate water. This very popular vine plant was originally bred in France and was the winner of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1994.
