Re: climbing rose

Hey Theresa

Thanks for the info. I forgot about Vintage Gardens. They are only about
15 minutes from me. Frankly, I thought they were out of business. I
think I'll check out their web site.

What percentage are grafted? Are you worried about fatigue or senility
in the graft over the years? That was a big topic of discussion in the
hibiscus groups as well.

Theresa, how much do you water your roses and what kind of soil? Can you
plant them right in clay? Do they hate wet feet? How often do you feed?

Subject: Re: [CHAT] climbing rose

I have a couple of climbers.  My smallest one is Cecile Brunner- has 
zillions of little pink flowers every summer.  It is probably about 8 ft 
and seems to be maxed out at that size. 
I also have Sombruiel- lovely flowers and is now covering at least 15 ft 
of fence horizonally and is still getting bigger. 
I have an alba rose (Alba Sauvolens- got it becuase it handles more 
shade than most roses) that is well behaved- only blooms for a brief 
period of time though : (
Or is that Madame Plantier??  I can't recall- I have both.
I have Gloire de Dijon climber in front.  It has been really slow to get 
growing and honestly- the flowers aren't all that pretty- not like the 
pictures I'd seen anyway.
Hmmm- I know I have 2 more, but the names are escaping me right now.  
The one is a single red with a white eye- I was surprised at how much I 
really like this bloom.  Very eye catching without being gaudy. Wish I 
could remember what it was.
And I have a white Rugosa rose that is very nice too.

Check out High Country Roses (http://www.highcountryroses.com/  or  
http://highcountryroses.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi), the Antique Rose 
Emporium: (http://www.antiqueroseemporium.com/)
-I have ordered roses from both and been very happy.  I only get 
"own-root" roses and both companies sell them.

When looking online I also found a place that might be interesting to 
visit in Sebastapol: http://www.vintagegardens.com/

Have fun!

P.S.  The autumn blooming clematis at work are in full bloom right now 
and smell wonderful.  Wonder why they are called autumn blooming???
