Shine a spotlight on a section of your garden with delightful climber Golden Opportunity™ Rose (Rosa 'WEKausujucton'); another winning choice hybridized by Tom Carruth. Formal, very full, double blooms feature up to 45 petals apiece and a fruity, Hybrid Tea-like fragrance from late spring through fall.

Deep glossy green foliage provides a perfect contrast to the lavish, spiraled blooms. With impeccable modern genetics, Golden Opportunity™ Climbing Rose stays clean and beautiful, with repeating flushes of pointed buds and cuppy yellow Roses with a hint of yummy apricot. You'll create warm-toned bouquets and table centerpieces!

Over the years, it will become a stylish asset that grows tall and wide, but only takes up a few feet of ground at the base. Growing vigorously to an 8-12 foot height and 3-5 foot width, this hardy Climbing Rose is highly adaptable throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 10!

Planting and Application:

Tie this vigorous Climbing Rose to a sturdy trellis and fencing for an incredible privacy screen or garden decoration. Everyone wants a private pool deck, but nobody wants to sacrifice their spot in the sun! Install a six-foot trellis around your pool and train Golden Opportunity™ Rose for fun, light-hearted "living wallpaper".

Tie a pair of these pretty plants to either side of a garden bench with a built-in trellis. What could be more inviting at the end of your garden path? Have a good time using these bold blooms - they'll take a "lot of look" without missing a beat. Create a swagged Rose festoon, or tall, skinny Rose pillar as an accent for a year-round structure. You can also include these on a fenceline to hide an eyesore or become a vivid backdrop to your garden beds and borders!

On apartment balconies, grow them in large containers to train up along a modular trellis system. You'll definitely appreciate this beautifully effective privacy screen and can take it with you if you move to a new place. Provide shade on balconies or create partitions and privacy around seating anywhere sunny! Create a special retreat as a destination spot on larger properties.

On steep slopes, use Climbing Roses as a gorgeous groundcover planting! Plant them eight feet apart on center, and spread the canes out in a fan shape to ramble and scramble down your hill.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Choose a sunny planting site that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Climbing Roses need good air circulation, sturdy support structures and well-drained soil. Don't forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting. Provide a location with good air circulation and organically enriched well-drained soil and fertilize regularly with a good quality slow-release Rose fertilizer.

How to Prune and Train Climbing Roses

Pruning should not be done during the first two to three years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes. These structural canes will grow thicker for several years before it is time to replace them.

Spring Pruning and Structural Rejuvenation

Remember that spring pruning is most limited to removing broken branches, and dead tips or correcting the structure of the Climbing Roses. If you remove long canes and side branching you will be removing the first set of June flowers.

  1. Prune Roses in early spring just as you see new buds beginning to swell.
  2. Remove any dead, diseased, or damaged branches.
  3. Identify several new, younger, more vigorous canes to become the new structural foundation of your beautiful Climbing Rose.
  4. Remove the fattest, oldest canes out at the soil level, if possible and right after the first set of flowers finishes. Those canes will be replaced with new shoots that develop from the base. As these new, rapidly produced shoots elongate, you will want to direct, train, and tie them into the place you would like them to develop.

Summer Maintenance and Pruning

Horizontal branches produce the most flowers. Prune these secondary canes after flowering, because Climbing Roses bloom on last year's canes (old wood).

  1. Cut your secondary canes down to 6 - 8 inches above a bud after the first flush of flowers has finished.
  2. Trim the secondary canes back at 90 to 45-degree angles.
  3. Keep your structural support canes in place.

In colder regions it may be more difficult to maintain Climbing Roses, so choosing your planting site is important.

Winter protection is best for Roses grown in zones 7 and colder. Mulch is your best, more natural way to overwinter roses by mounding the dormant canes in late fall. Don't fall prune, rather instead wait until spring.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose Trees need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
