New Red Climbing Rose for Cold Climates
by Charlie Nardozzi
Many gardeners have fond memories of arbors loaded with red Blaze climbing roses, but for gardeners in colder climates the only way to grow vigorous climbers such as Blaze is to pull the canes off the arbor and mulch them over the winter. Now thats changed. For gardeners in USDA zones 4 and colder, theres a new red climbing rose that blooms all summer and survives the harsh winters without protection.
From the Minnesota breeder of the famous, hardy Knock Out roses, comes Ramblin Red climbing rose. Ramblin Red features 10-foot-tall canes that have deep red, sweetly fragrant, double flowers. The bushes dont need winter protection, even in USDA zone 3, and have strong disease resistance, too.
