When I lived in Pennsylvania, I had not one, but two ‘Fourth of July’ climbing rose bushes. They got huge and were fantastic in preventing intruders from entering my urban garden. I wove their long, thorny canes within the pillars of my black aluminum fence to make a wall of color. Each bloom explodes in shades of pink, burgundy, and white with yellow streaks. It would seem nearly every bloom would be a surprise of color. Here are a few photos of this ever-blooming rose. Enjoy and Happy Fourth of July!
Potted Climbing Roses
Managing a climbing rose from a pot is proving to be a bit more challenging than I anticipated. Unlike growing a climber from the ground, I am having trouble getting my climber to bloom. I learned though the more petals the rose produces, the more sunlight the plant needs. After trying everything possible, I suspect perhaps my potted climbing rose isn’t getting enough direct sunlight. I moved her to a different location with the high hopes she will finally blossom. Sometimes relocation is all one needs.
