Lady In Red Rose (Rosa ‘WEKvaldaom’)

Lady In Red Rose

Fantastic Lady in Red™ (Rosa ‘WEKvaldaom’) Climbing Roses are dramatically saturated true-red blooms! The large ruffled, old-fashioned blossoms are lightly scented and their color doesn’t budge one bit as they open and age, keeping that true deep red hue from start to finish. You’ll adore the display as the entire 6 – 8 feet tall canes are completely smothered in gorgeous red flowers!

Clear and cool “look at me” red is the best possible way to call attention to a special feature of your backyard landscape. Lady in Red™ is lightly fragrant and holds its color beautifully in the vase as nicely as they do in the ground through the sun and weather.

The new growth is purple-tinged and mature to a glossy, dark green hue that is thick and vibrant in appearance. Hardy and reliable in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 9, Lady in Red™ is a vigorous grower and will fill out their supports quickly!

Planting and Application:

Climbing Roses are actually very hard-working vertical elements for today’s smaller yards. When you start with a classic shape like these fully double, huge blooms – it’s so easy to take the look modern, retro, old fashioned, formal, rustic, or whimsical. It all depends on the styling and choices you make! That saturated old-fashioned true red will shine through any landscape design!

Train up the canes of this classic beauty on a sturdy trellis in the front yard using twine, plastic ties, or twist ties. Give them several feet of room away from your house for the best air circulation and maintenance access, but wow! These red blooms would really pop against a shingled, gray, brown, stone-clad, or white exterior. Train two up and over a wide, sturdy arbor as a fantastic way to easily highlight the entrance to a path or your front door, while elevating the experience of entering the space

This is truly an outstanding selection – perfect for your front and backyard landscaping. Plan a special seating area and use this Climbing Rose to give yourself a little romance and privacy. This can be as traditional as using a white-painted Rose Arbor, or as modern as installing a series of rustic welded steel hoops. Anything goes these days!

You’ll love the height these canes bring to your garden! Train up a trellis for shade by a garden bench, add height and interest to a border, or train up an obelisk to create several levels in the garden for pollinators to access! Don’t forget to snip a few of these lightly fragrant blooms for your vases indoors!

Tips for Care:

This Rose is easy to grow and can adapt to a part shade situation. It also opens the door to being able to use it in more areas of your landscape. Provide a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch around the root system to hold in moisture and insulate the roots. Use mulch to help keep the roots moist and keep the ground near your Roses hydrated on a regular schedule once established to support the blooms, avoiding splashing the foliage.

Provide a location with good air circulation and organically enriched well-drained soil and fertilize regularly with a good quality slow-release Rose fertilizer. Don’t forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting.

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. If you deadhead the first round of spent blooms, it will encourage the next wave of flowers sooner. The new growth develops at the leaf axil just below where you trimmed off the old bloom. You can coax new flower development weeks sooner with simple deadheading after each wave of bloom.

To maintain healthy vigor with your Climbing Roses, every few years you may need to prune and remove one of the oldest, thickest canes out to the ground. Do this right after you have enjoyed the first round of flowers. This will encourage new shoots from the rootstock that will push out nice, long, straight young canes. You’ll have canes that are carefully trained where you want them to be.

  1. 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.
  2. Horizontal branches produce the most flowers, so tie the secondary canes at 90 to 45-degree angles. Use stretchy landscape ties, strips from old t-shirts, or old pantyhose to loop around the cane and your support. Check them yearly.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 are finished.
  5. 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.
