Climbing China (Cl Ch)
Climbing China roses are a beautiful and popular category of climbing roses. These roses typically have slender, flexible canes that can be trained to grow up trellises, walls, or other structures. They can reach heights of up to 12 feet or more and produce an abundance of fragrant, small to medium-sized blooms in shades of pink, red, and white.
China roses were first introduced in the early 19th century and were quickly popularized for their unique attributes such as their ability to bloom repeatedly throughout the growing season, as well as their distinctive fragrance. Climbing China roses were developed later on by crossing China roses with other climbing rose varieties.
Today, there are many beautiful cultivars of climbing China roses available, including ‘Cécile Brünner’, ‘Marie-Louise’, and ‘Reve d’Or’. These roses have won numerous awards and are widely grown in gardens around the world. They require regular pruning to keep them in check and to encourage new growth and blooming. With proper care, climbing China roses can be a stunning addition to any landscape.
