These 3 seedlings, from different roses, were started around the same time and grown under the same conditions. The one from Oranges and Lemons is starting to look like a climber. Don't know the pollen parent but do have climbing roses in the area.


They really had grown alot since mid July. The O & L one was always ahead.

RE: Are climbing roses born? Check out seedling.

Yes, some climbers are "born" that way, while others mutate to become climbers. I'm not surprised your Oranges'n Lemons seedling seems to want to climb. I've joked for over twenty-five years that anything bred by McGredy is "suitable for pegging". When released in my climate. most of his floribundas have appeared to want to climb. Kim

Kim - Thanks for the reply. I now remember how O & L can send up 5 ft. shoots if I don't really prune it back.
