ARGH! I can't see the sweet close-up!
Beautiful photos- I love Pierre. It looks best with black, I think.

Polka is my second favorite climber after Pierre. Thanks for the eye candy.

You are so lucky to have a resource like the Huntington. I love climbers; my favorites here are Candy Land and Polka.

Here's the link to this wonderful garden. Actually, many wonderful gardens with art galleries, a mansion, and a graceful marble monument.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Huntington

I adore climbing roses. Super picture of Pierre de Ronsard (aka Eden ?) and the arches. I buried a 5-gal. pot of Colette which is working well at keeping this rose about 4.5 ft. She has become a favorite in the 6 yrs. or so that I've had her. Color can be pinkish and peachish on the same spray. No disease in my no-spray bed. An unobstrusive charmer.

Polka was my lust-want. Then 2 friends planted her and they were both disappointed. Scanty rebloom was one reason. I had seen it the 1st spring and it was the softest glowing shade of peachy-pink. Oh to have a drawerful of lingerie in that color! The 2nd spring it wasn't the same rose. An average peach-apricot. Drat. I thought I'd found the epitome of climbers.

Love them all but was very interested in the shot of Candy Land. I got one 2 years ago and it's still only 2 feet tall, lol.

Oh, I'm having to catch my breath, these photos are so stunning. What a great pick me up for December. I was happy to see Colette's photo since I'm growing her, and she's still small. These are all so beautiful. Thank you, kitty.

It's gorgeous--all over again. Now I'm looking around wondering where I could put in more pillars for more climbing roses.

Gorgeous--I'm looking for more pillars, too! I have two Dublin Bays and they've grown quite a bit in two years (considering their half- to three-quarters shade conditions) but nothing like that show. I can't wait for third season, I've heard climbers usually get really started then.

Question: I have a southwest-facing front ranch "porch" with an overhang and pillars that gets full sun, but its completely barricaded by a 3-foot hedge along the front. If I could remove it and put in roses I would, but I can't. So I'm thinking to put my two DBs roses in large urns behind the hedge so they can climb the pillars. They already have 5- and 6-foot canes, so at least the tops of them would be out of the shadow of the hedge. Do climbers do well with their roots (and bottom of the canes) in the shade?

Yes to roots in the shade. They like that, but climbers need space to grow roots and so pots might not give enough room for a big climber's root system.
