The America Climbing Rose is a beautiful large flowered climber with salmon pink blooms.
It is an outstanding rose, and an award-winning performer. I have one growing on the edge of my garden, that was a gift from my daughter a couple years back. (Thanks Sheri)I love the color of this rose, it is not quite pink, yet not salmon either, but a pleasing combination of the two. The colors are soft, with a terrific perfume. The blooms on the America Climbing rose resemble those of Hybrid Tea roses.
These large flowered, pink climbing rose bushes, were bred from another wonderful rose (Fragrant Cloud), x Tradition. This rose is very
disease resistant. It has the most beautiful foliage I have seen on a
rose. The glossy leaves look almost fake! I actually touched the leaves and admired their beauty!
The long pointed buds on America rose open into fully double blooms with a salmon/pink color. The flowers are spicy scented, and cup-shaped. This climbing rose bush is slow to climb, so give it a few years to get going. It is certainly worth the waite!
It makes an excellent small climber, that would be suitable for
pillars, climbing along a fence, or growing on walls. You can even trim it to grow as a large bush.It grows quick, (once it establishes itself) to 10-12'.
Some say the fragrance on these rose plants, is like Dianthus perfume. Very spicy, and sweet. (One of my favorite flowers)
It has good mid-season bloom with fair repeat. The fact that America Climbing Rose is also winter hardy, makes it a good choice for colder climates. It usually climbs 8-12 feet.
This great rose climber was named and introduced during the U.S.bicentennial. 1976 (Hence the name)It is still very popular today, and a much sought after rose for the garden.
