Climbing Roses: To call a rose a “climber” is somewhat misleading, as these plants do not have tendrils or suckers that instinctively seek to cling to a trellis or wall. More appropriately, they are best described as very tall roses with extra long canes that can easily be secured to a trellis or other structure. While the thorny canes can hook themselves onto vertical supports, you generally need to tie the canes up the way you want. Climbing roses only bloom on one year old or older canes, so prune cautiously.
