Hot pink vertical color! The William Baffin Rose (Rosa 'William Baffin') is a hardy and vigorous Climbing Rose! Your William Baffin will explode with hot-pink brilliance in June. The semi-double blooms burst forth on the scene in huge clusters (of up to 30 blossoms each), that blanket the vine with unprecedented color and form! A single stem is an entire bouquet!
The flowers continue to bloom, over and over again right into fall, so you're assured of a long season of exceptional color! Your William Baffin Climbing Rose not only excels in appearance but also in fragrance, emitting a soft, gentle scent that calls you in for a closer look. The lush green foliage is the perfect backdrop and looks great all growing season long!
What's more, William Baffin forms orange-red Rosehips that are small but a welcome sight in the autumn and persist for winter interest! Use these in your dried and winter décor, or leave outside for color and birds!
It's fast-growing, vigorous, and disease resistant. The canes are quite strong, so can be left to their natural climbing nature, or pruned to create a colorful rambling and mounding shrub. William Baffin is cold-hardy as well, throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 9. Reaching upwards of 10 feet, this robust repeat bloomer will add a vertical beacon to your landscape!
Plant one of these brilliant beauties on the arbor in your garden, the trellis by your front door, or perhaps train one into a decorative shrub for your front lawn. The strong canes can almost support themselves and grow into a columnar form without support! No matter where you use it, William Baffin is a reliable source of color for your yard. Train over a garden bench, or shade a bistro set. Even balcony gardeners can enjoy a flowering screen planted in large pots and containers in the sun!
The canes of William Baffin are also fantastic when allowed to spill and ramble! Becoming a shrubby, cascading, and mounding bush or groundcover when not trained onto a trellis. Let spill over a retaining wall, mound up over itself as a barrier planting, or just ramble through the Rose garden, filling it in vibrant color, butterflies, and bouquet-ready blooms! Use Climbing Roses horizontally as a pretty living mulch, en masse plantings to fill wide swaths of sunny ground, or on hard-to-mow hillsides and embankments to slow soil erosion.
Roses do their very best in full sun and William Baffin is no different. For the healthiest and strongest canes, provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day, favoring the morning sun. Plant in enriched, highly organic, and fertile soil that is well-drained and well-mulched to hold in moisture. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months and plant in a location with good air circulation. Repeat flowering throughout the summer, these hardy Roses need a regular schedule of quality Rose fertilizers.
Pruning should not be done during the first two years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes.

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