HAVE: big old climbing rose -- cherry pink

seattlelisaApril 8, 2006

I've got a big old climbing rose that came with the house. It came with four actually! I've gotten rid of one, and I'm keeping two. This fourth one has been planted for years, maybe 40?, in the wrong spot. It wants sun, sun, sun, and free flowing air. And it's behind a fence. I don't have anywhere to put it, but I'd love to give it to someone with a good spot for it. One of the ones I'm keeping is just a spectacular grower, and easy easy care. In a good year it gets some alphafa meal and a little epsom salt. In a bad year, it gets water. And it just produces great bunches of bright magenta pink flowers, and tons of canes. With some good sun, and a little restorative pruning, I'm sure this one would do the same.

I don't really need anything in exchange for it, just the knowledge it has a good home. It is in West Seattle, if anyone is interested.
