Climbing Roses

Climbing RosesMost Climbing roses grow anywhere from 8'–20' in height and exhibit repeat-blooms. They lack the ability to cling to supports on their own, and must be manually trained and tied over structures such as arbors. Climbing roses are great for arbors and entry ways. They flower on green canes that get direct sun light and only require pruning every other to every third year to remove gray wood.


Tree Roses

Tree RosesTree roses are actually two different roses combined into a single plant. It consists of a root stock grown up as a trunk and the canopy, which is the desired variety. A tree rose is essentially just a normal 'bush' rose two, three, or four feet off the ground. Tree roses make a great garden accent and do require a good strong stake to support their blooms.
