Hi...I just noticed on one of the rose plants that I got from Wal-Mart has a metal tag attatched to the base and it says CL New Year. Does anyone know what this means or knows anything about this rose. I beleive it's a bright orange. I think that's what the photo looked like that was on the pot. Any help would be great. Thanks!

RE: Rose ID help..

The "CL" on the metal ID-tag means the rose is in the Climber class of roses. In your specific case, it identifies your rose as being Climbing New Year. (There is a non-climbing version of New Year.)

I have two Climbing New Year bushes in my yard. (I bought a second one because I was quite pleased with the forst one's blooms and fragrance-quality.)

I'd say the blooms' color is "true" orange. When the blooms are exposed to a full day of direct sunlight, the edges of their petals will "blush" pinkish.

You can read description-data and see a good photo of Climbing New Year at the following URL:
(Or use the Link at the end of this post.)

The description-data says CL New Year averages between 6 and 14 petals per bloom. In my yard, it averages between 14 and 23 petals ...and I've NEVER seen it have less than 14. It has moderate-strength (but very pleasant) fragrance.

Thanks so much JohnReb. I'm glad that I saw the tag on the plant. Do you train yours on some type of trellis or garden structure?
