The Jeanne Lajoie rose, is a climbing miniature rosebush that produces clouds of double, pink roses.
This very popular rose, is one of the best climbing miniatures available. The soft, medium pink roses are exhibition type flowers.
Long pointed buds turn into rich, medium pink colored roses, fading to pale pink, and eventually to white.The flowers are neat, flat, round, and very full of petals.
The flower clusters can contain anywhere from 10 to 40 flowers.
This miniature climbing rose bush is very vigorous,and grows quickly to cover a small trellis, or fence. Don't let the word "miniature" fool you, this miniature rose can grow to around 10 feet!
You will need to secure the canes to support the abundant blooms.

This immensely attractive, and adaptable rose bush, continually covers itself with blooms.
If trained on a fence or trellis,with the canes trained at a lateral horizontal position, bloom production will be staggering. If you want to fill an area with a large display of pink roses, this would be an excellent choice.
Although it is considered a climbing rose, the Jeanne Lajoie rose can also be grown as a freestanding shrub. It is a very bushy rose, with red new growth, appearing continually until early winter. By late Fall, the blooms take on a darker pink hue.
Mine, (pictured above) is one of my favorite roses! It simply covers itself with delicate-looking pretty pink flowers!
All I can say is.... It is just soo... pretty! And I can attest to the fact that it just keeps on producing blooms!
This climbing miniature rose bush was named for a French-Canadian folk heroine of the 1920's.
