Show me your climbers, please!

Even if they're not 'traditional' climbers, whatever you got to climb, or travel along a fence, I'd love to see them!
Thanks,
Alida

Royal Sunset - Morey'60

I love this climber beacause my allergy nose can smell it 6 feet away - lovely!
And colors of fading blooms are complimentary to newer blossoms.

The only true "climber" I have at the moment is Candy Land. I just got it last spring so it's only about 2 feet tall. But it did bloom wonderfully all summer!

Candy Land is so pretty,imagine what it will look like this spring!
Thanks for posting!!

RE: Show me your climbers, please!

I don't really have any good climber pics--or very many climbers--although I'm getting two more in the spring-- Austin's The Pilgrim and St. Swithun. Hopefully I can show off them next winter. Enjoy what you can here--not much of an offering.


Here is Eden Climber (and purple Clematis climber)--just beginning to recover from a rather severe spring pruning to get rid of some old canes and encourage it to put out some new canes.

Here is Eden Climber the year before:

This is Dublin Bay a couple years ago. I don't seem to have any good recent pics of the whole thing. And don't forget my little leprechaun there! LOL

Here is the Viking Queen climber--not very tall, but then it got RRD and had to be spaded. Very good climber/bloomer.

That's all I've got. Looking forward to your pictures. : )

RE: Show me your climbers, please!

Here are a few of my climbers in their spring flush, really the best time for them. While they don't go along a fence, they certainly could if I trained them to. I don't have lots of room and use a trellis or tripod for my climbers.


Mini Candy Cane next to standard mini Gourmet Popcorn


Westerland


Dream Weaver, who has been moved too many times


Christopher Marlowe grows on a small tripod for support


Ballerina and Flower Carpet on a big tripod. FC had to go up or die, and it did as it was told.


Eye Paint


Joseph's Coat grows on a trellis.

I learned while looking through my pictures, that I need to take more pictures of my climbers actually climbing, as opposed to just their blooms! Here's what I found (with a couple of my non-rosey climbers mixed in)...

Tammy

Pinata

Phyllis Bide mixed in with Carolina Jesamine

This rose was suppossed to be Adalaide Hoodless, but ended up being this beautiful pink LFC :)

Just for fun...Little Duckling Clematis

Hey Good Lookin'

Dream Weaver

One of my many grape vines

This was ordered as Souv de la Malmaison, but was a mislabel...I think the concensus is that it is actually Sombreuil Photobucket

Ash Wednesday..planted as a small band about a month before this picture, and oh boy did it take off! The longest canes are about 6-7 feet long already. Can't wait to see it bloom this spring!
Photobucket

My climbing rose project...the goal is to cover up the under deck area...its just being patient and waiting for them to grow! I have Purple Splash, Oranges n Lemons, Phyllis Bide, & Nahema planted around the bottom.

I'm with you Tammy. I need to take more pics of the climbers climbing, as well as the close-ups!

Here are some of mine:

Ohhhhh all these pics are gorgeous!!

Kathy can I ask where you purchased your Gourmet Popcorn standard? Cutest lil thing!! Loved the Candy Land too. Judy

RE: Show me your climbers, please!

Here is something different - Dawson's "Apple Blossom", a rambler from 1890. This rose has grown in our 107 year old garden for who knows how long - I don't know if it was root stock, even. It looks lovely every Spring blooming with Fortuniana (which I am sure was root stock) and climbing up our crab apple tree.

Jackie that is amazing! My climbers have a LONG way to go before they climb like that! Love it!

Beth, I'm glad to hear what you have to say about Butterscotch. I have it ordered from Vintage for this spring (they sell it as JacTan) Also, your Stormy Weather looks so much different than the marketing pictures, I actually like your photos better. I didn't realize it had flecking in the color.

Tammy, I LOVE that STORMY WEATHER! I can't wait to get it planted somewhere and get it growing all over! It's one of the coolest and most unusual roses I think I've seen in a long time.

Beth, I think I'll have add it to one of my spring orders! I just love it! It can take the place of Purple Splash which hasn't impressed me much so far. I'm so happy you shared the pics!

I agree--Stormy Weather is gorgeous! Do you have any more pics, particularly whole bush?

Sorry Kate. The plant was new last yr and it's still in a 16" pot. It's just a couple of like 2-3ft canes right now. I plan to get it in the ground this season and hope it really takes off!! Will keep you guys posted.

Pinkie.

RE: Show me your climbers, please!

That is one of my most favorite garden shots--just love it. And Pinkie is a show-off. Not to long ago I read someone's post expressing frustration with Pinkie--I believe the poster even spaded it. I don't know why since it makes such a colorful splash in pictures--but then I have never seen it in real life.
