Climbing Rose New Dawn has long been a longtime American classic with old world charm and proven gardening performance. Spectacular in flower, easy to train, while demonstrating good disease resistance.
New Dawn Climbing Rose produces numerous semi-double to double blooms with a luscious fruit apple fragrance. Flowers begin in early summer and continues sporadically until fall. Stunning when trained on trellises, arbors, pergolas, fences, even walls!
This carefree Climbing Rose should not be pruned for the first year allowing canes to become larger.

Soil: Prefers medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained garden loam. Thrives in soil with a pH level of 5.6 to 6.5, which is acidic to mildly acidic. Mix two tablespoons of lime into the surrounding soil if soil test results show the pH is lower than 5.6. Mix a tablespoon of sulfur into the soil to lower the pH if the soil is too alkaline or higher than 6.5. Roses also benefit from the addition of compost, aged manure, or leafmold to the planting soil.
Light: At least 5-6 hours of direct sun per day is preferred.
Water: One inch of water per week throughout their first growing season. A generous layer of organic mulch (compost or composted manure) helps keep the soil evenly moist. If weather is dry in the fall, be sure to water Roses well. Never allow the foliage to remain wet into the evening; water early in the day.
Spacing: 6 - 8 ft.
Fertilizing: To keep the flowers coming feed your roses with a fertilizer blended especially for roses. This should be done after each bloom cycle.
Winterizing: If you live near a rose's cold limit, and you garden on an exposed site or in an area where rapid temperature fluctuations are common, you should mound two shovelfuls of composted manure, garden soil, compost, or shredded leaves over the base of the plant in late fall after the ground freezes. Covering these mounds and the lower parts of the bushes with evergreen boughs will add protection. Pull the mounding material away from the stem as new growth emerges in spring. Prune branches injured over winter when new buds emerge in spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: Cleaning up old foliage is important for disease control. Do not prune for the first two years after planting. Once established, prune after bloom, removing spent flowering laterals to between 2 - 3 buds of remaining branch. Time of pruning is early spring after flowering.
