        If I did not already have the Flammentanz, that would have been put in the same spot, especially if my screen shows its true colour.

            I like the red leaves but they tend to turn green as they age like 'Rob Roy' below. :)

                        Unfortunately, Woo, in the mixture of shrub and climbing roses I have I haven't got Whiskey Mac, but I do have Rose Compassion on the South side of the Arbour, [which was a recommendation of yours].
                        So the only Mac I have is...........
