America Climbing Rose

The robustly growing America™ Rose (Rosa ‘JACclam’) is a luminous Climbing Rose with sturdy canes and clusters of double blooms in a luscious coral hue that is radiant against the dark, glossy green foliage! Growing tall with just a bit of support for the strong upright canes. From late spring until fall you’ll enjoy the elegant sprays of buds that open into ruffled intoxicatingly scented blooms!

Snip a few elegant stems to fill your vases indoors to bring the spiced clove fragrance! Place this standup Rose where you’ll be able to see and smell it. Use one or more on a trellis to create a flowering wall for an outdoor room! Use it along a sturdy screen to hide mundane, hum-drum, everyday objects like the HVAC unit, the neighbor’s messy yard, or those utilitarian garbage cans!

These showy blooms and their thicker foliage, are very tolerant of both heat and cold throughout USDA growing zones 6 through 9. America™ becomes covered in refreshing vertical-growing color, and it is easy to grow while attracting loads of butterflies and bees to your garden!

How to Train Climbing Roses

Pruning should not be done during the first two years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes.

  • Select several canes to become the structural foundation of your beautiful Climbing Rose. The structural canes will grow thick for several years before you replace them.
  • Horizontal branches produce the most flowers, so tie the secondary canes at 90 to 45-degree angles. Use stretchy landscape ties or old pantyhose to loop around the cane and your support.
  • Prune Roses in early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches. Cut your secondary canes down to 6 – 8 inches above a bud, but keep your structural support canes in place.
  • Rejuvenate the structural canes every three years. Because Climbing Roses bloom on last year’s canes, you’ll wait until the first flush of flowers have finished.
  • Trim the thick old structural canes out at ground level at that time. Then, select a new set of canes to become your structural support.

Choose the America™ Climbing Rose for your garden gate this year and you’ll be graced with the fully double, ruffled salmony coral blooms and spicy fragrance for years to come!
