Climbing ROSE BUSHES
CITY FLORAL GROWN CLIMBING ROSE BUSHES
Climbing rose bushes are an excellent way of bringing height and a feeling of abundance to the garden. They are best and most frequently used on house walls but are also perfect for growing on pillars, obelisks, walls, trellises, and overarches. Climbing Roses usually have large flowers, held singly or in small groups. Nearly all varieties have the ability to repeat flower. They are fragrant and healthy and have the natural ability to flower from the top almost to the ground.
KEY FEATURES & CARE
Climbing rose bushes bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
Watering these rose bushes one to two inches of water per week is usually sufficient, but this varies by climate and growing conditions. Hot locations and sandy soil like Colorado will need more frequent watering. Make sure to water the ground and not the leaves.
Climbing roses do their best in rich, fertile, loamy soil with good drainage. No matter what soil is in your garden, it can be improved with the addition of organic matter such as compost, mulch, or peat moss. This will improve drainage in heavy clay soils and improve water retention in sandy soils.
Climbing rose bushes are heavy feeders and benefit from regular applications of fertilizer. Choose a balanced fertilizer or one labeled for roses. Iron is essential if the soil’s pH is too high. If the leaves turn yellow with green veins, use an iron supplement.
