Bred by David Austin Roses and dedicated to Chaucer’s pilgrims in The Canterbury Tales, The Pilgrim Climbing Rose is an elegant shrub consisting of dense clusters of 100+ petaled rosettes that fade from blonde at their centers to sugar cookie yellow at their edges. Lush, imperial green foliage sets off the stunning blooms, which produce a strong strong tea fragrance with added notes of fruit and spice. Bees will buzz about this shrub, otherwise known as Rosa The Pilgrim®, 'AUSwalker', and 'Gartenarchitekt Gunther Schulze', from the first moment it blooms in May until the last frost of autumn. Assembling the blooms into bouquets will not only brighten up a room indoors but also fill it with an ambrosia-like aroma.

This European original is cold hardy in zones 5 to 11. Growing upright to an ultimate height of 5 to 8 feet and spread of 2 to 3 feet, this perennial makes a lovely screen or cover for unsightly outdoor structures. Protect its blooms from deer by planting it with deer-resistant plants such as astilbe, coreopsis and salvia. This showy perennial can be lightly pruned to maintain the traditional form of a shrub or can be trained to climb up a wall or trellis.  

The Pilgrim Climbing Rose Care

The Pilgrim Climbing Rose prefers loamy, moist, well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. Choose a location that gets at least 6 hours of full sun. Plant it in a hole that is large enough to hold the entire rose’s root ball. Make sure this rose receives at least one to two inches of water per week. Once the blooming season begins, feed this climber with a formula specific for roses one or two times a month until the beginning of fall.

The Pilgrim Climbing Rose should be pruned in late winter. Trim dead, damaged, diseased or crossing stems. Cut back the side stems to a few inches. As you shape this climber, focus on creating horizontal versus vertical growth to increase the number of flowers. During the flowering season, deadhead spent blossoms.

The Pilgrim Climbing Rose Spacing

Train The Pilgrim Climbing Rose to climb a wall, fence, or trellis, or prune to maintain a smaller, shrub-like shape. This ornamental works well planted alone as a specimen in a garden bed or a container. When planted en masse, space each shrub 4-5 feet apart. Plant it alongside other companion perennials including false indigo, lavender, and Russian sage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
