Climbing Miniature (Cl Min Fl)
Climbing miniature roses are a delightful addition to any garden, with their small blooms and compact, bushy growth habit. These roses can be trained to climb up walls, trellises, and fences, and are ideal for small gardens or balcony planters.
One of the most popular climbing miniature roses is ‘Jeanne Lajoie’, which produces small, deep pink blooms on long, arching canes. This variety is known for its disease resistance and hardiness, making it a good choice for gardeners who want a low-maintenance climbing rose.
Another popular variety of climbing miniature rose is ‘Red Cascade’, which produces small, bright red flowers on cascading canes that can reach up to 6 feet in length. This rose is often grown in hanging baskets or trained to climb over archways or pergolas.
Climbing miniature roses were first developed in the mid-20th century, with the goal of creating smaller climbing roses that could be grown in small gardens or on balconies. One of the pioneers of climbing miniature rose breeding was Ralph S. Moore, who developed many of the first climbing miniature rose varieties, including ‘Baby Love’ and ‘Climbing Golden Gate’.
Today, climbing miniature roses are a popular choice for gardeners looking for a small, low-maintenance climbing rose that can add color and fragrance to their garden. With their compact growth habit and small blooms, these roses are a delightful addition to any garden or balcony.
