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?

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 :-)
