Climbing Moss (Cl M)
Climbing Moss roses are a beautiful and unique type of climbing rose that are beloved for their fragrant blooms and distinctive “mossy” growth on the stems and buds. This variety is a climbing version of the Moss rose, which is known for its fluffy-looking growth on the stems and buds.
The Climbing Moss rose was first introduced in the early 1800s, with the most famous variety being the “Climbing Old Moss” rose. This variety has won several awards for its stunning beauty, including the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
Climbing Moss roses are known for their vigorous growth and ability to climb up walls, trellises, and other structures. They produce large, fragrant blooms in shades of pink, red, and white, and are a favorite among gardeners who love to grow climbing roses.
Some popular varieties of Climbing Moss roses include “William Lobb,” “Blanche Moreau,” and “Madame Plantier.” These roses require regular pruning to keep them under control, but their stunning beauty and unique growth habits make them a worthwhile addition to any garden.
