New Dawn Climbing Rose



Introduced in 1930 and Still a Favorite

New Dawn Climbing Rose is a classic favorite that bloomed on the scene in 1930.

A free-flowering climbing rose, New Dawn reaches a height of 18 to 20 feet, with a width of 7 to 10 feet at maturity. The blooms repeat throughout the season, from late spring to late fall. Borne in abundant clusters, the pretty pink, fully double blooms are ruffled and softly scented with a light, sweet fragrance. They measure 3 to 4 inches wide, display a pearlescent blush, and make excellent cuts for the vase. Just a single snip makes a big-clustered bouquet for the perfect centerpiece.

New Dawn is easy to grow, disease resistant, and a little shade tolerant. This highly versatile rose can be grown on trellises, poles, arches, and pillars, trained along fences or walls, or allowed to fountain on its own.

Exceptional climber

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We have had this rose for 5 years now in a NW exposure in partial shade in New Rochelle, NY. While I suspect that with more sun it would do even better, it has nevertheless bloomed very well reliably producing a large number of flowers in June and then more sporadically throughout the reminder of the warm season. We have a few other climbers near it, they do bloom but nowhere near as well as New Dawn.

Bought two plants and put on either side of an arbor in my backyard. The first year I didn't get many blooms...but this is now their third year and between the two plants we easily have over 600 flowers!! So Beautiful!!!

Lost my beautiful climber to Rose Rosette disease

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is nothing against the company or the new dawn rose itself (which produces a beautiful array of small flowers throughout spring into early fall), but more of a warning for a rose disease that I never new existed called Rose Rosette disease. Apparently this disease is prevalent in the Eastern/Northeastern US, and once the rose is infected, it must unfortunately be cut down and rooted out (it seems in my research that New Dawn is susceptible to this disease, though I have only read one other post mentioning New Dawn dying this way). The virus is transferred by a type of mite (eriophyid mite) and causes the whole climber's development to become deformed/mangled until it dies (it can also be researched under the name witches' broom). It may be due to my own negligence that the mites infected the climber [I did not know they carried these types of diseases], although I am reading that they cannot be rid of like regular spider mites; not much is known about the disease or this type of mite eradication except with a dormant oil to kill them as they hide for winter (I was surprised to find groups of mites attached to the ends of the rose's roots system in deep soil, I found an ant among them at this depth and suspect the mites symbiotically use the ant tunnels to reach these areas). Well I have rambled too much and I guess the point has been made. I had the heartbreaking task of removing my rose today and had to pause a bit in remorse having worked and waited 2 years to see its beautiful blooms (gone in a single season). I am waiting now to see that the disease doesn't spread to my other climbers...I don't know if I will plant this or climbers again, but for those who see it living for generations...consider yourselves blessed. The best to everyone.

Beautiful memories

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I am just now ordering . I remember the one my Grandparents had & how beautiful it was when my grandfather made a natural arbor by allowing it to take over the apricot tree! What a beautiful sight, such a beautiful delicate flower! I'm 80 now & don't do much gardening anymore but am determined to work with this one!

New Dawn Climbing Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love love this rose vine. Purchased 2 was not sure how they would do. They are doing so well I'm going to purchased 11 more. Have them climbing on a chain link fence. Will be like having a private fence with out the cost. Would love to send a close up picture. Was not able to find a link.
