Every rose enthusiast knows that you cannot have a rose garden that lacks climbing roses.

These beautiful climbing roses have been called many names including pillars, trialing roses, ramblers, and even ever blooming roses. These aren't thought to be true vine though, regardless of what they look like. The reason for this is that they don't have a support structure, but in spite of that they do well on arches, fences, and just about any other garden structure.

Since climbing roses won't be able to grasp a structure like their sister plant the vine, we need to give them some assistance. What you can do is actually attach the plant to the desired building or actually wind it. The best place to do this would be on a shed, pillar, or even a trellis. Something that they can get a hold on would be best, but you can do it on nearly any building that has solid mass.

Climbing Roses

You can train climbing roses to grow laterally instead of growing in a vertical fashion, and you will find that the blooms from this effort are more plentiful. If you train your climbing roses to grow in a vertical fashion they will have short spurs about the stem, and these too will give you blooms. No matter what these plants look like, you have to keep in mind that they are just like any other sort of rose plant.

If you decide to raise climbing roses then you will need to know that they need around seven hours of sunlight each and every day. There are some variants of climbing roses that are said to thrive in the shade, but everything needs sunlight, and while these only require four or five hours each day, they are no different from any other type of plant in their basic needs.

If you want to have climbing roses within a garden of yours, you need to think about exactly how tall they may grow to be. While some of these roses may be as small as seven feet tall, you should know that some may grow to be as tall as thirty feet!

Do you have the ability to support that type of plant? Look at your structure and see if it has the ability. Remember too, that the climate is very important. There are types of climbing roses that may only grow in the springtime, while others will actually grow all year long.
This is something to think about when you are planting these beautiful climbing roses plants within your garden!

Climbing Roses

There is a difference between climbing roses and standard rose plants that you are going to find out, and that difference is a lack of pruning. You won't even need to think about pruning your plant initially. Why is this? It's because pruning causes the climbing roses to bloom less, unlike other roses. Very odd yes, but keep it in mind.

If you do happen to own some climbing roses then you could feel free to do your pruning every few years. When you do prune though, remember that you're only getting rid of small canes or smaller canes at the plant's base. You need to get the more vigorous canes to grow, and if you do this you will have a much easier time getting those canes use structures to advance skyward.

They aren't going to establish themselves right away, but as they develop you'll realize that it was definitely worth waiting for!
Patience is always a virtue, especially in the case of climbing roses.
