Climbing Rose For Gazebo
I'm serving as a volunteer at a children's rehabilitation hospital, where I'm designing a garden for special events, and where families can spend time visiting their hospitalized little ones. The garden I'm designing overlooks a charming old gazebo that's currently used as a parking spot for dumpsters and trash cans -- not the loveliest of views. The gazebo is currently scheduled to be torn down, but I've asked the hospital to salvage it. I can use plantings to screen the large dumpster (not shown in the photo below) and the trash cans, and I'd love to blanket the gazebo in beautiful roses. Summers here are hot and dry, but the grounds are well irrigated, and I'll make sure the soil is adequately amended. The gazebo gets sun through much of the day, but large trees in the surrounding areas seem to take the edge of the heat; typically in the 90's throughout summer. Any help selecting a rose will be tremendously appreciated.
