Pale popcorn yellow repeat blooms on a mid-sized climbing rose, the Golden Showers Climbing Rose (Rosa 'Golden Showers') blooms repeatedly all summer and into the autumn months! Filled with voluminous petals that start as yellow buds and gradually soften to butter yellow and nearly white as they age. Nearly thornless canes support these prolific blooms, backed by a flush of glossy dark green foliage!

Golden Showers Rose is ideal for smaller situations as it only grows about 6 feet in height and can have a similar spread. Award-winning and compact, these are easy-to-care-for Roses! Wafting with sweet fragrance and cheerful color, anyone for sure would be overjoyed to receive one of these golden gems!

Climbing Roses like this can be trained into a shrub form as well! Talk about versatility! Even tolerating a touch of shade, you're sure to find a spot for this sunny shrub! Forming compact canes that are disease-resistant, you will barely need to fuss over this delightful gem!

Planting and Application:

Golden Showers Climbing Rose will fill a small wall or trellis for pinpoint privacy and shade regardless of how much room is available for it to grow on! Balconies in the sun, backing a bench or seating area for screening and shade, or filling an obelisk in the garden to add height and golden color! Train as a backdrop to a cottage and cutting gardens or let them climb on a staircase to enjoy the ouch-free canes and glowing color in high-traffic locations.

Perfect for Rose gardens to add height, or to cover up an eyesore, an ugly chainlink fence, or let ramble into a thicket for bird-friendly cover and wildlife habitat at the back of your yard and in out-of-the-way areas! Group in threes or fives for clusters! Perfect in pollinator gardens and your world indoors and out with blooms! The versatility of these climbers means even planters and containers protected from the brunt of winter's chill work well for these Roses!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Climbing Roses need full sun and good air circulation to do their best! Provide a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves and prevent water from the hose and sprinklers from wetting their leaves. Plant in enriched, highly organic, and fertile soil that is well-drained - never becoming soggy. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months.

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.
