Westerland Apricot Climbing Shrub Rose
Very fragrant apricot-colored blooms!
The soft-colored, double blooms open from attractive ovoid buds, boasting 17 to 25 ruffled petals that are nothing short of breathtaking! You'll love how the various shades of apricot and orange blend into each other across the petals, creating an artistic look that barely seems real!
Westerland is a wonderfully versatile rose as well. Growing from 5 to 12 feet high and about 4 feet wide, it's great for landscaping or growing in containers (in mild climates) and can even be trained as a climber. And of course, the blooms are wonderful for cutflower arrangements! Hardy and vigorous, it's shown excellent disease resistance, so its large, dark green foliage will stay clean and healthy all season long! Zones 5-10.

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.
