The reason I like Climbing America

This picture is an example of the reason I love this rose, I love the soft salmon color and the blooms have such a beautiful shape, I'm sure glad I didn't shovel prune it. I used to only dream that I could one day have these beautiful blooms when I looked all the lovely pictures.

Oooh - I love the color - which is strange - since I don't usually like salmon. Lovely roses!!

Outstanding pic. I'm going to start growing mine as a shrub instead of a climber. Not consistently cane hardy here.

Thank you Paul. Are most of your climbers own-root too? I have one modern climber, Dublin Bay that is own-root. It only took it a couple of years to become established, Even though it needs some TLC, it is my best blooming and most vigorous modern climber. I would like to know if you have any own-root climbers and how they do?

Sara-Ann: Yes, all my climbers are own-root, except for two. I have a Cl. Cinderella (Kordes) a Garden Sun, both in large pots. I like these two, and may try to find them own-root.

I have Cl. America too, and I love it but am now growing it as a shrub. Same with Aloha, Agatha Christie, White Cap, Zeus, Heavenly Gates (America sport), Cl. Carefree Sunshine, Goldregen, Salita, and others. All own-roots.

I do grow Ramblin' Red, Rosarium Uetersen, Golden Arctic, Sky's the Limit, and Amadeus as climbers. Also trying a few other climbers in pots: Swan Lake, Smiley Face, Scarlet Sensation, Pink Don Juan, and Scent from Above.
I used to rave about Ramblin' Red. Now I'm having some issues with disease, altho this could be rodent damage. Dang chipmunks - the cutest rodent but when you have a hundred they lose their charm!!

I forgot about New Dawn. I got rid of it since it was too monstrous for the location. I also have its sport Awakening, which may be better behaved, not sure yet.

Your Dublin Bay looks great.

I love America too. I was worried about mildew in my area but after it's second year mildew has been minimal.
