The large flowers just smother the gorgeous masses of toothy foliage as they reach for the sky! Ready and eager to grow up as they are to ramble and tumble on the ground as a shrubby groundcover, the width of these canes only grows to 4 feet at maturity. Repeat blooming with abandon, it will be smothered in clusters of cupped, semi-double, bright-red flowers from spring until fall.

One of the best and easiest climbers to train since the canes are very flexible. It's an impressive sight in full bloom!

Heat tolerant throughout USDA hardiness zones 6-9, these are adaptable, versatile and disease-resistant modern Roses!

Planting and Application:

Romantic ruffled blooms have a slight scent and add that perfect pop of color, grace and structure to your garden. Blaze Climbing Rose is one of the best red climbers you can grow on the garden gate or trellis. Training easily onto arbors or over fences for privacy and upright color!

Dress up a modern cottage garden with 'little red dress' accents or add a vibrant column to a cut flower garden or perennial border that acts like a torch among the other ornamentals! You'll love filling vases indoors with these brilliant cupped blooms too! Pollinators and bees are drawn to the color red and flock to these blossoms all growing season! Grow one over a garden bench so you can watch them buzz and flutter from flower to flower!

Be sure to include one as a vertical anchor on a planting beds corner, train over a bower, add height with an obelisk in the middle of your front yard berm, or add pinpoint shade from the sun! You'll also enjoy sipping your favorite beverage under a shady wall filled with red blooms in a private garden nook, or at a bistro set under a flowering arbor!

When given nothing to climb on, Blaze becomes a tumbling and rambling groundcover, filling in large expanses with vivid flowers and cover. Let spill over a hard-to-mow hillside or over a retaining wall so the arching canes add graceful spilling color. When trained on a fence or as the fence itself, these thorned canes become great deterrents to trespassers and wildlife that want to wander into unfenced areas of your yard!

This magnificent classic Climbing Rose can grace walls, fences and pagodas, happily climbing on any framework provided, adding structural and far-reaching color and deep leafy green architectural structure to your garden! Create screening and living fences with these densely branched canes and you'll enjoy red Rose 'wallpaper' around your outdoor garden room!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Blaze Improved is an adaptable heat tolerant Climbing Rose and does best when planted in moist soils and in full sun, favoring the drying powers of the morning sun. However, this Improved variety also tolerates partial shade, especially afternoon shade in the hottest of its favored growing zones. It's a very attractive and reliable Rose and shows good disease resistance. Provide a location with good air circulation and organically enriched well-drained soil and fertilize regularly with a good quality slow-release Rose fertilizer.

Pruning should not be done during the first two years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes. Read all you need about Rose pruning Roses Here, and about winterizing your Roses Here and un-wintering Roses in Spring in our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog!

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, strips from old t-shirts, or old pantyhose to loop around the cane and your support. Check them yearly.
  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.

Blaze is so resilient, it's like a no-maintenance Rose! You just plant it and enjoy it year after year! For dramatic pops of vertical color in your landscape, hurry and order the Blaze Improved Climbing Rose from today! These bold selections won't stay in stock for long!

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose bushes 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 Rose Bushes Come Back Every Year?

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