Rose 'Dreaming Spires'

Location:

The Vistor Centre.

Description:

'Dreaming Spires' is a climbing rose, with glossy dark-green leaves, and a continuous display of deep yellow fragrant flowers throughout summer.

Site and Care:

Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out, in full sun or partial shade. Climbers may repeat bloom. Climbing roses are not self-clinging and need supports of trellis or horizontal wires to which the shoots can be tied.  Prune early to remove winter damage and dead wood. Prune after flowering (late autumn/winter) to shape and keep their size in check. If the plant is heavily congested, cut out any really old branches from the base to promote new growth. They will benefit from a mulch at this time. Regularly dead head.
