Dublin Bay Climbing Rose

Here's the latest rose I have blooming. It's called Dublin Bay and it's a nice climbing rose. Mine was only planted in October 2008, so I haven't had it long enough to have a very informed opinion. The blooms are all that I could wish for - deep red and nicely formed. One downside is that it doesn't have much fragrance. My sister, Susie, has an older one that is growing by leaps and bounds. So far, neither of our plants has exhibited disease problems, but that could change once the dog days of summer come around. Anybody else got any feedback on how Dublin Bay performs in the South? By the way, my wife Jo took this picture since I'm still away at work.
