Climbing Rose Bushes Add Color And Fragrance To Your Garden

Apr 5, 2008
Have you discovered the secret of climbing rose vines? Contrary to the belief that all roses are difficult to grow, the climbing variety can be simple enough for the beginning gardener to master.

One of the benefits of including roses in your garden is undoubtedly the fragrance they provide as well as the colorful flowers. Who wouldn't love going outside and basking in the beauty and fragrance of a luscious flowering rose garden?

But in addition to their decorative capacity, the climbing variety in particular can also solve some of your home improvement problems. For example, does your view at home include the plain, drab wall of a building - maybe a garage or utility shed? Or maybe you have a fence that, while still functional, is embarrassing to look at.

Since rose vines grow up rather than out, they are the ideal solution to many of these landscaping nightmares. Although there are many types of plants that can grow with climbing vines, roses are perhaps the most beautiful flower to be had. Why not go for the best and solve your problem with style?

It's not hard to grow climbing roses. In fact, they can be incredibly easy - just see to it that they will have plentiful sunlight, good soil and of course, a place to expand such as a trellis or fence. The best part of all for gardeners who are impatient is that these vines will grow quickly.

If you want your vine-filled trellis or fence to look its absolute best, always remember to perform the occasional pruning. Shaping your rose vines is not difficult, but you'll need to make sure they are properly trained to grow to whatever you've attached them to. You'll experience the most enjoyment from your flowers when you take these simple steps to ensure proper growth.

You should know upfront that climbing roses are not the same as the variety you cut and use in bouquets. They are meant to be enjoyed in their natural, on-the-vine state. Keep that in mind when choosing the best location for your plants - you want to get as much enjoyment from them as possible.

If you just love traditional roses you may want to try the Don Juan. With full deep red blooms and dark green leaves, you'll fall in love with the intense rose fragrance it produces. This would be perfect for that extra special place in your garden.

If you want to have a garden you can be proud of, consider adding one or more climbing rose plants to the plan. Best of all, because these plants are so easy to maintain, your friends and neighbors will think you have the greenest thumb in the neighborhood.
