New Dawn Pink Climbing Rose
Introduced in 1930 and Still the Favorite!
'New Dawn' is a free-flowering, easy-to-grow standout rose. Its blooms are fragrant, its dark green foliage lush and surprisingly disease-resistant, and its season of bloom very long. Each fully double bloom measures 3 to 4 inches wide, sporting tones of pearlescent blush. The scent is powerfully sweet, making 'New Dawn' a great choice for the vase as well as the garden. And the blooms arise in big clusters, so a single snip makes a bouquet.
Climbing 18 to 20 feet high and 7 to 10 feet wide, 'New Dawn' flowers reliably all summer long and into autumn in many climates. A classic for more than 75 years, it is a superb choice for a wide variety of areas. Zones 5-9.

What to Expect
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 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.
