Soaring Spirits Climber
We planted this rose last fall and it has now reached about 5 1/2 ft tall. It is a rose that upon seeing it, you know you have to own one for yourself. Such lovely pink and white blooms with a striking yellow stamen. No two blooms are the same. Very aptly named to commemorate those who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy, ‘Soaring Spirits’ introduced by Weeks Roses is a fitting tribute to those who died and a great reminder to us all that freedom is never free.
This rose is proving to be quite disease resistant and hardy in my zone 8a Alabama garden. I am hopeful it will continue on its present path of growth and blooms.

Beautiful – and even more special given its birthright.
Wow and Wow! And I don’t like pink, yet this climber is splendid! Thanks Chris!
That is a new one to me Chris. I love the markings on it. Does it have a fragrance? Lovely.
Lona, Sadly no fragrance…. But it is such a beauty, don’t you agree?
