Climbing rose: Rosa Sombreuil

Climbing rose: Rosa So

Bred in France and introduced in 1850, 'Sombreuil' is one of Martha's favorite climbing roses. It was named for a heroine of the French Revolution who reputedly drank a glass of an aristocrat's blood to prove her nonaristocratic status. 'Sombreuil' has very double, creamy-white flowers. Climbing roses bear large flowers in small clusters and bloom repeatedly all season?particularly the modern varieties. They produce long, stiff canes that should be trained horizontally on walls and fences to encourage flowering shoots to form along the entire length of the lateral branches.

Once newly planted bare-root roses break dormancy, feed with an all-purpose fertilizer at half rate, following package directions. After the first season, feed with balanced organic fertilizer in early spring and again in early summer at first bloom, and spray bushes with kelp extract in early fall. 0 To discourage fungal diseases, avoid wetting foliage, and remove and dispose of fallen leaves. Spray a mixture of 4 teaspoons baking soda and 1 tablespoon horticultural oil per gallon of water; repeat weekly. For aphids and spider mites, use horticultural oil, following package directions. Handpick Japanese beetles, and destroy. Taylor's;, Arena Rose Co.; sweet, tealike To extend the hardiness range a zone or more northward, protect through winter by mounding a mix of 1 part sandy loam and 1 part compost 10 inches high around and over the bases of the bushes, then wrap principal upright canes in burlap. Apply the mix in late fall when cold weather has settled in. Remove burlap and half of mix in spring when roses' buds swell, and rake out remaining mix for mulch. A rose’s fragrance comes from its leaves and sepals as well as its petals. The production of 2 pounds of attar of roses, the essential oil used in perfumes, requires the fresh petals of about 1 million roses. Choose a sunny site with fertile, well-drained soil, and amend with well-rotted manure or compost. Plant container-grown roses in spring or fall (at least a month before frost), at the same level they were in the pot. Plant bare-root roses in early spring; before planting, soak entire plant in water for 12?24 hours to replace lost moisture. Dig a 2-by-2-foot hole. Return some soil to hole, forming a 1-foot mound. Place plant on the mound, fanning out roots. Set bud union just above soil level. Cover roots with soil, and water thoroughly, but do not fertilize at this time. 1 When leaf buds open in spring, remove winter-damaged branches, and crossing and weak canes. After early-summer flush of flowers, cut back horizontal side branches by half. Renew old, declining bushes at this time by removing oldest, woodiest cane; tie in a new, vigorous cane as a replacement. fertile, well drained 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 train on a pillar or trellis 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 > 0 1 0 0 climbing hybrid tea rose
