Climbing Roses

Climbing roses are a popular plant for vertical gardens. Interestingly, botanists do not consider them true climbing plants like vines because they donít grow their own support structures to hold onto a surface. Therefore, they need a helping hand and a vertical space to attach to and grow on.
If youíre interested in growing a climbing rose, you also can choose to purchase a trellis or an arbor so that they have a suitable place to grow. You can also be creative and train your roses over a fence, a pillar, a garden shed, or other structures in your yard. Climbers may be any one of the rose types we show in our other pages, but grouped all rose varieties of climbers on this page.
