Lamp post climbing rose?

Posted by hoghaven_duluthmn (My Page) on

I am thinking about planting a climber on my lamp post. Of course, white would look nice at night. Is there a tough white climbing rose? There is plenty of salt spray in the winter, snow banks and deer just to be a challenge. Out west I had a very nice red climber, but I don't know of a white one. Any other ideas? It seems most annuals take too long to bloom in Duluth. Perhaps a hanging basket would be the way to go. Any ideas appreciated!

Moon gardeners seem to consider the Moonflower a staple of the moon garden, and I understand that it is a vine. Maybe ask on the Moon Garden Forum to see what they say. I have looked at some of the photos they post, and it is a spectacular flower. Carmellia
