Rosa 'John Cabot'
The beautiful 'John Cabot' is one of the Canadian Explorer series roses. This means it's as hardy as they come. The lovely medium red blossoms appear intermittently all summer and have a lovely soft scent. Although classified as an upright rose, the canes are long enough to train as a low climber.
