Clematis on Climbing Rose (photo included)

GardenGuyZone6a(6a)April 24, 2012

Hey everyone.

I just bought 2 Aloha roses (hybrid tea everbloom climber) for the front corners of my new shed. I also picked up 2 Jackmaniis. What do think of planting a rose & clematis a foot or so apart in the corners and then using the climbing rose branches as a method of climbing the clematis?

Front door faces south.

Lots of people combine roses with Clematis. It is a time honored combination.

Just be aware that the clematis will likely put on much more top growth the first season or two than will the rose....plan accordingly for supplemental support :-)

I know it wil be beautiful! I hope you post pics of the end result when the time comes. In the meantime, here is a thread from the roses forum of some combos that may inspire you some more. I also have climbing aloha but it's a barefoot And I haven't decided what Clem to use yet. Yours is an excellent choice tho!

I think those 2 colors will look spectacular with your shed.
