|A country cottage smothered with a magnificent, fragrant Climbing Rose even makes non-gardeners swoon. Trained to grow upward on trellises, arches or pergolas, they need little garden space (unless you never prune them, then some varieties could swallow a whole yard). Old plants can disguise garages or sheds. Needs full sun to bloom well. Easy to find. Nurseries, hardware stores, and some grocery stores sell them in spring. Look for older or rare varieties at specialty nurseries.
This natural climber blooms repeatedly from late spring to mid-autumn. the large, red blossoms have a heavy fragrance. It is widely available and easy to grow. Excellent as a pillar rose.
