Rosa "Climbing Peace"
I never met a rose I didnt like, and this one is no exception. This rose, along with a couple of others is growing in very poor, clay soil, but does so like a champ. It is extremely vigorous, and hardy in my zone 6-6b garden. I love how the blooms form in a multitude of soft, satiny yellow, ivory, and pinks. My husband lops it back every now and then when it gets in his way. I just dont have the heart,lol. It climbs fairly quickly, and enjoys full sun. Hardy in zones 4-10, and I get to enjoy its blooms all summer long. When fully open, the blooms are about 4-5". There is a slight fragrance, but not real noticeable to my nose. Most information I have read about this one, says it gets 8-10 feet. Where I have it, it easily goes 11-12 ft. I really need to go in and cut it back to about 8 feet.
