If you prefer red climbing roses
Valentine's Day is the one for you. This is one of the reddest reds
we have ever seen. Plants are profuse bloomers producting tons of
velvety red blooms born in clusters. Leaves are a healthy shade
of dark green providing a beautiful backdrop for the flowers. Valentine's
Day is smaller than most other climbers and requires less pruning.
Its smaller stature makes it perfect for smaller garden structures
such as a trellis or small fences and can even be grown in a container.
Height: 6 - 10 feet
Habit: small climbing rose
Disease Resistance: very good
Culture Notes: Plant in area that
receives full sun, a minimum of 5 hours of direct sun is recommended. Climbing
roses are not as fussy about soils as many other types of roses,
but will do their best in a soil that has been amended with plenty
of organic materials. (see
improving your soil for more info) While these roses are considered
very heat tolerant they do require a moderate level of moisture
to really flower heavily. Water during extended dry spells and frequently
during the first 3 -4 weeks after planting. To help conserve
soil moisture it is always a good idea to apply a layer of organic
mulch such as pine bark around the base of the plant to a depth
of 3 - 4 inches. Pruning is required to maintain a tidier plant
and deadheading faded blooms will encourage heavier flowering. Feed
at least twice during the growing season with a combination of blood
and bone meals and once in mid summer with a good organic rose fertilizer.
