Tips for Care:

Rose care starts with proper site selection and good air circulation. The Tangerine Skies™ Rose prefers full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sun a day) and rich, well-drained soil. Water consistently to keep this darling happy and provide a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch to give them a polished look and hold in moisture more evenly! Fertilize 2-3 times a year with Rose food for best results.

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. Prune and shape the flexible canes in early spring.

  • 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 is 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.
