It’s beautiful, I love the dark reds. I have black baccara but it’s struggled, 1 flower last year and then got put in a pot to move and replanted. It’s alive and I really hope it flowers this year.

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @midnightgardener Elaine, Chris there are 3 bushes of these by my back fence been there since I moved in here in 1993!!! Was told they are Black Boy but seems to fit the description - tall up to 6ft and climbers if left alone! These usually grow a couple of foot above my 4’ fence - I cut them back a couple of times a year. Don’t need to tie them as so close to fence. Always first out and generally a bloom still on one of them in Nov❤️
