Pretty Climbing Roses for your Garden


Nothing sets off a house like a Climbing Rose in full bloom trained against the walls, or draping the porch. Climbing Roses are vigorous shrubs with long, arching, stiff and thorny stems that are well adapted to training on arches, arbors, obelisks, pillars, fences, trellis and walls.

  • Not as vigorous are Rambler Roses, most Climbing Rose varieties grow from 6-12 ft. long (180-360 cm) and will spread about 3-4 ft. wide (90-120 cm). They are well adapted to small gardens.
  • Climbing Roses produce an abundance of large, single or clustered, often fragrant flowers. Unlike Rambling Roses, most Climbing Roses usually repeat flower throughout summer and fall. Most bloom two or more times every season: first on old canes, and then on the current season’s growth. However, few cultivars bloom continuously throughout the growing season.
  • As a result of interbreeding efforts, there are a number of ever-blooming Climbing Roses that will produce flowers all summer, providing a show-stopping floral display. Blooming from early summer to fall, these beauties bloom repeatedly until the first frost.
  • If your heart is set on a Climbing Rose which does not flower continuously, you may want to extend its season of interest and combine it with Clematis or Honeysuckle to fill the gaps. Learn how to combine roses and clematis and create a dramatic effect.
  • Climbing Roses require more care and attention than Rambling Roses. They need annual pruning and training.
  • Learn about the differences between Rambling Roses and Climbing Roses. While these roses produce long stems and attractive blooms, they differ in several ways.
