Eden Climber - A true beauty

KhaViMay 26, 2012

Hi All,

I always want climbing roses over an arbor. I finally got an arbor up in my garden, thanks to my husband. There are so many beautiful climbing roses to choose, but I decided on Eden climber because of her charming beauty.

I intended to hold off sharing Eden pictures in this forum until they got a little bigger. However, I cannot wait any longer...:) I have just planted these two Eden climbers this winter from bareroot. They are now around 3.5 feet tall with total of about 40 blooms on both plants from the beginning of the season.

I never get tired looking at Eden blooms

Eden blooms last a very long time on the bush

Hope you all enjoy the photo. Thank you.

very very elegant.
I got a new Eden too this year. Hope she can grow fast and climb soon.

Your plant looks very healthy and the blooms flawless. That being said, I must note that here Eden has been a big disappointment. I don't know what weather it needs, but every year it balls and browns badly. Moreover, it has never repeated and has suffered a lot of winter damage.

Your Edens are spectacular! It's my favorite rose. Thank you for sharing the photos of your beautiful arbor.

Thanks all for your nice words.

freelong - I hope to see your Eden soon in this forum.
mantis - I'm sorry to hear that Eden doesn't perform well in your area. Hopefully, my Eden will be OK in zone 9. I have seen Eden from the gardens in my area with spectacular shows in the Spring. That's why I decided to have Eden.
Renee - Eden must be my new favorite in the garden too.

I do already have some Eden pictures, and will post here later.

I am on Zone 5A, and I think my Eden won't climb as much as in the warmer zone.

The local nursery has an incredible arch with a pair of White Edens on either end, hundreds of flowers!

Makes me want to rethink that rose!

What a great job you are doing with your Edens--they are so lovely! Great arch, also.

Great pictures. Eden is one of my favourites, and the one that got me into growing roses in the first place. Unfortunately, mine never recovered from severe damage damage. Reminds me that I need to order a replacement.

What gives? My Eden (bought as a band last year), has started growing rapidly (after a very slooow takeoff).

I gave the roots a not so gentle tug trying to dig Eden up but it wasn't going anywhere.
The roots were deep. It was a failed attempt at relocating due to inactivity! But I did myself a favor because that woke up Eden (Pierre Ronsard) out of a deep lullaby.

So, it's been alert and growing up a pillar (my original intent). It is now a a few feet tall, green, healthy foliage.

I check it everyday for signs of buds. I have yet to see 1
bloom. I put a handful of Epsom salt at the base this
evening and then watered.

Here is my Eden, which I got from RU about 6-7 years ago, growing around a pillar--the biggest one I could find, but it is barely big enough. But then I had to trim Eden back last year in order to replace the crumbling pillar. The spring bloom that followed looked pretty good--but since then it has been sulking--I'm not sure it liked that pruning. Not that it ever had great re-bloom, but certainly better than this. I hope by next year it fully recovers from the forced pruning because it is one of my favorite blooms also.

Closer shot of the beautiful blooms (but a bit dark).

Not the most floriferous bloomer in the garden, but you will forgive her whenever she does bloom!

KhaVi,

lovely pics. I bet the sight of Eden covering that arbor with flowers will be stunningly beautiful!

Eden is a keeper for me. One of mine has decided to become a continuous bloomer this year--it has been flowering freely, continuously, non-stop since spring. Although it isn't as floriferous as the spring flush, it's never without 20-something plus blooms. Eden has been growing clean for me: no rust, no mildew, no disease issues. And I can smell its sweet tea scent! I hope you can too, because some Eden owners can't detect any from it!
