Climbing roses are a versatile addition to the sunny garden or landscape. While often planted next to a fence or trellis or used to cover an arch, climbing roses can also provide a colorful backdrop for perennial flower gardens. Choose from a variety of flower colors as well as single or double flower forms. Some flowers are also very fragrant and will perfume the summer air. Like other rose plants, climbing roses grow best when they are planted in full sun and well-drained soil. When selecting rose bushes to grow in your garden, make sure they are suitable for your hardiness zone, and also note their mature height and spread as well as their disease resistance.
