Popular Miniature Rose Climbers

Climbing miniature roses are perfect for gardens that don't have a lot of space, but want to give some height to the garden in the form of blooming roses.

Miniature rose climbers can reach a height and width of 3-6'. Some of the large flowered miniature climbers can reach 4-12'.

Climbers, after all, are only shrubs with long sprawling canes. They lean on vertical surfaces for support. Canes are covered with blooms at almost every leaf junction.

They do however NOT attach themselves, and rely on You , the gardener to tie the climbing miniature roses to their supports and "train" them in the direction you want them to go.

Tips on Training a Miniature Climbing Rose...

To get the most flowers on your climbing rose, miniature or otherwise...

Train the canes horizontally.(or as close to horizontal as you can)

This will increase the number of of flowers, by encouraging more buds to grow along the length of the canes, instead of just on the ends. These are called "flowering laterals".

Some of the short, stiff  'Pillar climbers' or so-called Pillar roses grow upright and still produce flowering laterals, so you don't need to bend them to get lots of flowers.

Tie the canes loosely with twine or something soft. Avoid using wire because it can cut into the cane as it grows.

Planting Miniature Rose Climbers...

The only difference between miniature climbers and climbing roses is the size. Therefore you plant these tiny versions of roses the same as you do normal size climbers. This page; can guide you on planting climbing miniature roses.

Find a suitable spot to grow them. They don't grow nearly as large as the regular climbers, although some grow longer than others.
