Climbing rose: Rosa Blaze

Climbing rose: Rosa Bl Bred in the United States and introduced in 1932, large-flowered 'Blaze' is perhaps the most profuse bloomer of the short climbers, producing a multitude of semidouble, crimson flowers each summer. It is a rambling climber that will spread, scramble, and climb up any support but remain manageable. Climbing roses typically bear large flowers in small clusters and bloom repeatedly throughout the season?particularly the modern varieties. They produce long, stiff canes that are best 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 Plant disease-resistant cultivars. 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 CRL;, Arena; slight 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. Roses have existed in North America for more than 30 million years, according to fossil records found in Colorado. Many historians agree that the Chinese were the first to cultivate the rose more than 5,000 years ago. Archaeologists have even discovered Asian coins minted in 4000 B.C. bearing rose motifs. 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. In Zones 6 and warmer, set bud union just above soil level. In Zones 5 and colder, set bud union 2–4 inches below soil level. Cover roots with soil, and water thoroughly, but do not fertilize at this time. 0 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 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 > 0 0 0 0 climbing rose
