Glowing and radiant, Royal Gold Climbing Rose (Rosa 'Royal Gold') is a brilliant gilded climber that adds the Midas Touch to arbors, fences and trellis anywhere you have a sunny patch of the garden! Climbing tall and sturdy on supports, arbors and trellis, filling vertical swaths with golden hues, pollinators and gilded cut flowers! These fast-growing gems won't keep you waiting and overflow with vivid blossoms.

These fully double-petaled beauties are backdropped by lush deep-green foliage for a breathtaking sight! Train up any strong support to grace path entrances, gazebos, or as a dramatic specimen and focal point in the garden! Bringing sunny golden color to highlight your landscape!

As if that weren't enough, these Roses glow in the sun and are very heat and sun tolerant in USDA growing zones 6 through 9! Royal Gold grows to 10-12 feet in height and can reach 4-5 feet in width, and the blooms keep popping all summer! For the rest of the growing season, these canes are full of glossy green foliage!

Planting and Application:

Let this Rose climb over your doorway and practically yell "Welcome!" to everyone who comes to visit. Let one droop over your seating area for a touch of shade. Set one over a porch entrance or shade a swing or breakfast nook. Whether the sun is up or not, you'll enjoy a sunny sight on your back porch or seating areas!

It would almost be a waste if the cheery yellow color were confined to the garden. Thanks to the flowers being born on long, strong stems, though, you can cut vases full of flowers for your table all season long! Add to cutting gardens, shade parts of perennial beds, and as backdrops to cottage borders with sunshine blossoms!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Roses always do best in full sun, however, this Rose is hardy and does appreciate a touch of partial shade in the afternoons of those hotter climates. It only takes a little TLC and a good spray schedule, to keep this Rose happy. You won't regret the effort. We bet this will even become one of your favorite Roses because of the extra care you give it.

Add Nature Hills Root Booster into the planting hole. The symbiotic ingredients never stop supporting the tiny feeder roots. Roses need a consistent schedule of water. They also flower best with a schedule of specialty Rose fertilizer.

Deadhead spent blooms for more to keep returning and prune in early spring before you see new growth.

Overwintering Tips For Colder Zones

In late November, carefully take the longer canes down and lay them on the ground, or encase them in a cage filled with clean leaves or mulch. Mulch over the remaining canes to protect them in winter.

Wait until spring to uncover these canes just as the plants start to come out of dormancy. Carefully put them back into place and pull the excess mulch away from the base of the plant.

Wait to remove any broken or diseased branches until early spring. Leave healthy green stems in place for best flowering.

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.
