Raised in 1919 by Australia's own Alister Clark, 'Black Boy' is still the most popular crimson climber. Outer petals are a deeper shade than within, and they darken with age to develop subtle purple-black markings. The first flowers are early, appearing mid-spring, and are followed by a second flush during summer. A vigorous climber for pillars, fences and arbours, 'Black Boy' will infuse your garden with its fresh apple scent.
