Perfect in small properties and acreages alike, the well-appointed Ramblin' Red® Rose (Rosa 'Ramblin Red') is a super-showy addition to your landscape! Attractive clusters of deep pinkish-red, fully double blooms repeat in lavish flushes from late spring through the first frost of fall! The satiny finish of the petals sets off the spicy-scented blooms which fill your vases indoors!

Welcome spring and draw pollinators with ruby-red blooms! Once fully open, you'll be treated to bright yellow eyes that act like a bullseye for bees! Even when not in bloom, you'll enjoy the burgundy new growth which turns voluptuous dark green all summer. Then autumn offers deep, Merlot-red fall color and bright orange Rose Hips for tea, jelly, and birds!

Compact growth of lush green foliage and strong canes that won't take up very much room at the base - but these beauties grow tall to offer a brilliant splash of color when trained onto sturdy structures! A cousin of the Knock Out® series, Ramblin' Red® forms long, flexible canes that make this a truly versatile Climbing Rose shrub and can be used either as climbers or as rambling, flowering landscape additions!

Very cold hardy and resistant Roses, these are cold-hardy down to USDA growing zones 4 through 7! Reaching a sizeable 6 to 10 feet in height when allowed to Ramble, these space-saving plants only spread 3-4 feet wide, Ramblin' Red® Rose is grown on its own root, and rarely displays winter die-back.

Planting and Application:

Make a sunny side yard a feature in your landscape with a vertical Climbing Rose! You'll squeeze the most out of your investment with a long trellis adorned with bold blooms! Train a pair of these pretty bloomers with their light, spicy fragrance up and across a garden gate. Add a trellis up and around your front door for a modern take on classic Cottage Gardens!

You can even plant them along a fence without tying them up! Let them cascade and ramble over each other to create a thicket that birds adore and will serve as a pretty border that will be sure to keep trespassers at bay. Double-duty fencing and hedges that also offer up delightful backdrops to garden beds and borders with a slice of scented privacy!

Because Ramblin' Red® Rose develops orange hips, it makes a wonderful addition to wildlife-friendly landscapes. Songbirds will take them after a few freezes, or you can gather them for yourself to craft Vitamin C - rich homemade Rose Hip jelly or fall décor!

Have one of those steep hillsides or eroding slopes that are tricky to mow? Plant a Ramblin' Red® at the top and let it spill down the embankment, turning a problem spot into a colorful spectacle! Let cascade over the top of a rock wall or retaining wall for a pretty solution to an eyesore!

Even container gardeners can enjoy these blooms! Create screening and living fences with these densely branched canes and you'll enjoy old-fashioned Rose 'wallpaper' around your outdoor garden room! You'll also enjoy sipping your favorite beverage under a shady wall filled with soft pink blooms in a private garden nook, or at a bistro set under a flowering arbor! Train onto a lattice in a large planter and balconies, decks and porches gain privacy, shade and screening

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Climbing Roses bloom the best and have the strongest canes and the most blooms in full sun, favoring the drying powers of the morning sun. Plant in enriched, average to medium, well-drained soils and moisture during the summer heat. Apply high-quality Rose food, following the directions on the label. For optimum flowering and disease resistance, planting areas with good air circulation. Be sure to add a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch to retain moisture.

How to Train Climbing Roses

Pruning should not be done during the first two years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes.

  1. Select several canes to become the structural foundation of your beautiful Climbing Rose. The structural canes will grow thick for several years before you replace them.
  2. Horizontal branches produce the most flowers, so tie the secondary canes at 90 to 45-degree angles. Use stretchy landscape ties or old pantyhose to loop around the cane and your support.
  3. Prune Roses in early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches. Cut your secondary canes down to 6 - 8 inches above a bud, but keep your structural support canes in place.
  4. Rejuvenate the structural canes every three years. Because Climbing Roses bloom on last year's canes, you'll wait until the first flush of flowers are finished.
  5. Trim the thick old structural canes out at ground level at that time. Then, select a new set of canes to become your structural support.

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.
