Climbing Roses

Climbing roses can add color and fragrance to the landscape. This type of rose is more a sprawler than a vine; they don't have any natural mechanism to climb, so you must train them to grow over fences, arbors or trellises. Some varieties that are well-suited to Florida include Rosa banksiae, (cultivars: 'Lutea' and 'Alba') and Rosa laevigata (cultivars: 'Crépuscule', 'Fellemberg', 'Maréchal Neil', 'Don Juan, 'Blossomtime', 'Catherine Nelson', 'Spectra').
