Climbing Roses

About Climbing Roses

Those climbing roses whose names start with 'Climbing' or 'Cl' are sports (genetic mutations of the bush varieties of the same name). They generally have a heavy spring bloom followed by scattered blooms throughout the season.

The individual blooms on climbing roses can be of a finer quality and larger than those of the bush form. Climbing roses whose names are not prefaced with ‘Climbing’ or 'Cl' are bred by crossing two roses. They generally have a heavy spring crop followed by a better repeat bloom and usually a good fall crop of blooms with a few exceptions. A few seedling Climbing roses bloom only once and are so noted. Climbing roses are a diverse group with many different heritages, which makes this a wonderfully useful collection of roses. Large flowered climbing roses differ from Ramblers in that they have fewer, yet larger blooms (4-6 inches in size) and are not quite as vigorous. Being so diverse, they vary in winter hardiness, generally climbing roses are hardy zones 5 or 6 through 10 except as unless noted.

  • Compassion®

    3 Review(s)
    Most beautiful, large 4", fully double blooms are a lovely shade of apricot, copper and gold which are produced in cascades. A profuse continual blooming climber that should find a spot in every garden. May also be grown as a large shrub similar to 'Westerland'. The marvelous honey/peach fragrance of 'Compassion' has earned it the RNRS winner of Edland Medal for fragrance. Makes a good cut flower. Learn More

    Large, old fashioned, fully double 4 1/2", cupped blooms (petals 100). The blooms are an unusual blend of pastel pinks, creams and yellows. Vigorous bushy, well-foliaged, disease-resistant plant. A versatile repeat blooming climber ideal for many uses in the small or large garden for training on fences, trellises, walls and gazebos. Hardier than most climbers and of restrained growth. One of the finest climbers to come along in years. Learn More
  • Fourth Of July™

    2 Review(s)
    This is one of the most eye-catching and beautiful of all the striped roses. Large semi-double 4" blooms (petals10-12) of velvety, scarlet-red striped with white. The long lasting blooms are produced in large sprays and are blessed with a spicy/sweet apple fragrance. The vigorous disease-resistant continually blooming plant is clothed with sparkling, deep-green foliage that sets off to perfection the superb blooms. This climber may also be grown as a free standing shrub rose in cooler climates. All of these attributes add up to make "Fourth of July" an outstanding rose. Learn More
  • Joseph's Coat

    6 Review(s)
    We have waited many years to offer virus-free, virus-indexed plants of 'Joseph's Coat', the most strikingly colorful of all climbing roses. Large trusses of medium sized, semi-double 4" blooms (petals 12+) of cherry-red, overlaid, shaded and blended with gold. They open fully to show rich deep golden centers. A color combination that will catch your eye the minute you enter your garden. An upright continually blooming plant with dark-green glossy foliage. May be grown as a free standing shrub, pillar or climber. Makes a wonderful hedge. Very vigorous and easy to grow in inferior soil. Learn More
  • Purple Splash

    Wine-purple and white striped, speckled blooms with a sweet apple fragrance are produced in clusters on nearly thorn-less canes. Learn More
  • Raspberry Cream Twirl

    This rose is the first striped climber with classic, exhibition-type blooms. The large, very full, cuplike blooms offer a deep pink with white stripes and emit a light apple fragrance. This robust plant grows to be 10-12’ tall and 4-5’ wide and has medium, glossy, dark green foliage that is dense and leathery. Its excellent resistance to diseases makes this a wonderful climber that can perform well all over the country. On top of it all, it is almost thornless, making it the perfect rose for cutting, gardens, pillars or high foot-traffic areas. Learn More
  • Summer Wine

    The delicately beautiful, nearly single 3 1/2" flowers provide an airy effect of butterflies. The petals of the lovely buds are a rich apricot-coral shading to gold at the base. They open to become eye-catching blooms with scalloped petals of soft coral-pink enhanced by golden centers with striking red anthers. A wonderful continually blooming climber, especially for those who love the beauty of single roses. 8-10 petals. Learn More
