Climbing Roses are one element of a cottage garden that is easier to grow than most gardeners realize. Cherry Frost™ is even easier because it is very hardy (USDA zones 4-8) and is grown on its own rootstock. This makes Cherry Frost™ tough as nails and much more resistant to disease and pests. The small clusters of bright-red flowers clothe this vine from late spring to the first frost, attracting beneficial pollinators nonstop. Climbing Roses are quick growers that require little maintenance once well established.
Cherry Frost is a smaller-sized climber that is excellent for covering a trellis and shorter structures. The fragrant flowers are small but form large clusters that do not need deadheading. The rootstock of Cherry Frost™ is resistant to most diseases and makes the plant tolerant of colder temperatures with little winter protection required. Deer may browse on the tender flower buds, but this rose will quickly recover and produce new vigorous shoots.
Cherry Frost™Climbing Rose Care
Plant Cherry Frost™ in a full-sun site with well-draining and average-textured soil. Add a slow-release fertilizer formulated for roses to the soil before planting. Look for an NPK ratio of 1-2-1. Plant container-grown roses at the same depth as they were growing in the pot, no deeper. Keep the plant well watered until the roots establish. Roses require moist soil and benefit from regular mulching with organic material to help the soil retain moisture.
Pruning climbing roses is not complicated. Cherry Frost™ blooms on old or new wood and can be pruned once a year if necessary. Late winter is the ideal time to prepare these roses for the new growing season. Prune away any dead, diseased, dying, or diagonal branches. At the same time, you can tie in any new branches you want to train on a trellis. Cherry Frost™ Climbing Rose will not require extra protection in winter other than a 3-4 inch layer of shredded leaves or compost around the root zone.
Cherry Frost™Climbing Rose Spacing
Climbing Roses grow much taller than wide and can be underplanted with a large range of shallow-rooted perennials successfully. The mature spread for Cherry Frost™ is 4-6 feet, making it a more compact climber than most. Space the plants at 2 feet on center if planting more than one.
