Erupts with blooms all summer and into fall on hardy vines!
A classic returns! Adored since its 1976 introduction, this large-flowered climber erupts in bloom all summer and into fall on tough, hardy vines that quickly reach 10 to 12 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide.
And what blooms they are, too! Fully double, bursting with 30 to 35 petals each and opening from lovely pointed buds, the 4- to 5-inch, old-fashioned flowers are a luscious pink suffused with salmon and coral, with lighter tones on the petal reverse. Best of all, the flowers have a strong, spicy clove scent!
The very disease-resistant plant is attractive even when out of bloom. It covers itself with healthy dark green leaves that provide a wonderful backdrop to the gorgeous fragrant blooms. There's no better way to bring easy, long-lasting color and fragrance to all your trellises, arbors, walls, and fences than with this award-winning, timeless classic!
Bred by American hybridizer Bill Warriner, America™ is a cross of R. 'Fragrant Cloud' x 'Tradition'. Recipient of the 1976 AARS Award. Plant this climbing rose in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. Var: 'JACclam' (PP#3,682). Zones 6-9.
Bareroot or Container?
Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.
Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.
Bareroot roses may look dead, with their brown roots and dormant stem, but plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting, which is very stressful.
You can plant your bareroot roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area’s last frost date in the spring. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren't dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into decorative containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like. As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot or container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!
