Some Roses easily meld with every garden style and can be used in classical gardens, or more modern settings alike. Fabulous and fragrant Westerland Climbing Rose (Rosa 'KORwest') is one of the world's best selections that boasts clear, coppery apricot-orange blooms from summer into fall! This rich color makes itself right at home in any type of sunny landscape!

The unusual luminous color ranges slightly from bloom to bloom, which makes an entrancing display. Combined with the bronzy green leaf color, this is a beautiful specimen! Coppery, corals, golds, and oranges, all vary in hue as the blooms open and age.

Extremely fragrant, the cupped blooms are large and double with 18 to 25 petals. Held in heavy clusters, the blooms really pop against vigorous, glossy green, disease-resistant foliage. Your garden will never be without ample stems for bouquets or their entourage of starstruck butterflies and bees!

For a special focal point in a garden room, consider this classic pillar Rose growing on your obelisk, arch, or pergola! It is sure to become a spectacle with a Westerland trained to climb it. You can even grow it up along a 6-foot fence as a gorgeous barrier to protect your house!

As an outstanding specimen to add height and a focal point to Rose, perennial, or Cottage gardens! The narrow form is perfect for space-saving hedges and privacy rows! Let ramble up a balcony for shade or cover an eyesore of a fence.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

All Roses need full sun to draw out the most blooms, keep the leaves healthy, and grow strong canes. Provide a rich, fertile well-drained soil location, preferably with morning sun access to dry the leaves.

To prevent mud from splashing on your leaves and carrying potential disease, topdress the entire root system around your Westerland wiht a 3-4 inch deep layer of mulch.

Set up a regular watering routine and fertilizer schedule to keep your Rose blooming happily!

If you don't mind pruning, you can also keep it short as a smaller bush in your mixed borders or as thrillers in larger pots and planters. It's hard to imagine denying this magnificent, hardy Rose anything!

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.

  • Provide regular fertilizer for healthy growth and blooms
  • Deadhead to keep the blooms returning and prune in after flowering
  • Extremely disease resistant and cold hardy roots
  • Vigorous, upright growth that acts as a climbing rose
