'Orchid Jubilee', Bred by Ralph Moore, California 1992.
Breeding: "1-72-1" x 'Make Believe'.
'Orchid Jubilee' is one of the new Climbing Miniatures from Sequoia Nursery. It blooms in clusters of a soft orchid mauve color on a small climbing shrub.
After 3 years in my garden, I can safely say that this is one of the best performers of the Climbing miniatures. It repeats quickly, with mountains of blooms in big clusters, and make a fantastic display. It is not really a climber in the traditional sense, but forms a 4 foot arching shrub with many gracefully pendant canes.
Disease resistance is very good, and the plant makes one of the most attractive small shrubs imaginable. Highly recommended.
merit rating: 7.6
