Re: climbing rose

Antique Rose Emporium sells mostly, if not exclusively, own root  roses.   
These are far more hardy than the grafted varieties.   Unlike Hybrid Teas and 
other grafted types, the antique roses (on their own root  stock) survive in 
humid areas much better.  Black spot is a constant  problem in humid areas, 
however, they grow many roses that seem to never get  black spot, even during the 
rainiest seasons.  
I had several rose grafted rose bushes (American Beauty, etc.) that I grew  
in El Paso, Texas.  When we moved to the Mojave desert in California, we  took 
them and grew them successfully there.  We dug them up again, along  with 
countless other plants, and rented a U-Haul to move our plants.    Much to our 
disapointment after having done this quite a few times, almost every  plant, 
especially the roses died.  It wasn't an immediate death as with our  wonderful 
cactus collection, but a slow painful death.  I vowed off roses  until I visited 
the Antique Rose Emporium in Brennam several times.  I have  been growing 
these type of antique roses on their own root ever since, and am  very pleased. 
I agree that the single type roses often have a "wild look", but I think  
many of the doubles put the hybrid teas to shame in bloom.  Antique roses  do not 
have the straight canes suitable for cutting (long stem), but the blooms  are 
equally if not more attractive, in my opinion.

I  actually got to 
go to the Antique Rose Emporium one of the times I was in  Texas- it was 
fabulous.  I sniffed everything I could get my nose  near.
