Rangoon Creeper is at top of my vine wishlist. Roses are indeed very healthy. Job extremely well done.

Tahir sb not picnhed it. I want to see its real height and flower size. Documented height is approx 10 feet plus but mine is 6 feet plus.
I think sowed it bit late thats why flower size and height are smaller(still large enough to normal one)
