Red roses are a delight. The problem for me is that there are so few of them that are really disease resistant. The "reds" that are disease resistant are not true reds - they are more magenta colored. An example of this is the Knockout roses, which aren't a true red. I'm giving Dublin Bay a try since I really needed at least one red climber for my chain link fence. Thus far, it's been a great rose. Here is my best pic to date of the flowers. A real plus for this rose is how long the blooms last. They stay for several days before falling off or fading. They keep this deep red color which is hard to capture on my cheap camera.
