America™ Climbing Rose may not be old enough to be considered an heirloom or old rose, but it has been available for 50 years and will most likely be around for another 50. This coral-pink climber is as fragrant as it is vigorous. America™ can be pruned at any time of year. This is a climber that blooms on old or current-season wood and in fact, blooms non-stop from late spring until the first frost in fall. Introduced in 1976, Rosa ‘America’™(JACclam) immediately won the All American Rose Selections award for fragrance and color and continues to be impressive 50 years later.
America™ Climbing Rose is a grafted rose that is hardy in USDA zones 6-9 with little winter protection. The thick green foliage stays fresh and disease-free throughout the summer. The large, coral-shaped flowers retain their delicate color even after rain showers or in typical urban pollution. If you have a shed or other structure that needs hiding, America™ will rapidly scramble up and over to provide a living screen, full of pollen and nectar for wildlife.
America™ Climbing Rose Care
Plant climbing roses in a full-sun location with average soil pH and texture. Roses appreciate soil that is well draining but also retains moisture. Mulch around the root zone with 2-3 inches of organic compost or fine arborist chips to keep weeds from growing and to hold moisture in the soil. Always plant grafted roses with the graft union just below the soil's surface. If you garden in a colder zone, the union should be up to 3 inches below the surface for insulation during the winter. Fertilize climbing roses at the beginning of the growing season. They are heavy feeders and do their best with a fertilizer formulated for roses and other blooming shrubs. Look for a 4-6-4 ratio of NPK and follow the manufacturer's recommendation.
America™ can be pruned at any time. It blooms on both old and new wood. Late winter and early spring are the traditional times to prune back any dead, diseased, and dying branches and set the stage for the new season. Deadheading will encourage more blooming, but is not a necessity with climbing roses.
America™ Climbing Rose Spacing
Climbing roses need to be given a structure that they can climb with tie supports. America™ can quickly grow to its mature size of 12 feet in just a couple of years. The base of the plant will stay much smaller, and lower stems can be pruned off to make room for neighboring plants. Place any companion plants at least 12 inches out from the base of climbing roses to allow proper root formation for both plants.
