Few plants can compete with the dramatic impact of colourful climbing roses. Whether winding around a column or adorning a trellis, they add beauty and serenity to any setting. But many gardeners are slightly intimidated by the prospect of growing climbers, which have a reputation for being finicky and especially prone to damage from deep freezes in winter. While it's true many climbing roses need extra protection, there are also hardy types available that don't.
If you're a little daunted by the mythical difficulty of growing the showy plants, take heart: choose the right variety, and your rose, not you, will climb the walls with abandon.
Roses generally prefer full sun, so the spot you plant them in should receive an average of at least six hours of sun per day. The spot you choose should also have plenty of space. Climbing roses tend to overtake the space that they grow in, so they should be positioned away from trees, shrubs, and other plants.
