Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionBold, romantic, easy to grow: that's why we offer Florentina™ climbing rose. We fell in love with its striking cupped blooms, fabulous climbing habit, and outstanding performance, and we know you will, too. The flowers have an irresistible true, deep red color that's intensified by the layers of supple, silky petals. It's long-blooming and disease resistant, plus it boasts canes (stems) that are more flexible than other climbing roses, giving it a softer habit and making it much, much easier to train on your trellis, railing, post, or mailbox.DetailsBotanical name: Rosa 'KORtrameilo' Patent #: USPP 24,196 Common name: Climbing rose Zone: 5 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 7-8' x 3' Flower color: Red Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer - fall Uses: Accent, Cottage gardening, Ground cover, Slopes, Screen, Vines and climbers How To GrowSoil: Roses thrive in rich, well-drained soil. While they're not picky about pH, neutral to slightly acidic conditions are best. Once they are established, most roses can tolerate some dryness; however, flowering will decrease or even stop if they become stressed. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun). This encourages the best flower production while also aiding in disease resistance. Water: For best results, roses should get about an inch of water each week, through rainfall or irrigation. This can be difficult to gauge, but if you avoid keeping plants too wet or too dry, they'll be fine. When watering roses, whether by hand or with an irrigation system, avoid wetting the foliage, which encourages leaf spot diseases and powdery mildew. Spacing: 3 feet, minimum Fertilizing: Roses benefit from high levels of nutrients, increasing flowering as a result. We recommend a granular rose fertilizer applied in early spring, just as the ground begins to thaw. If you wish, you can make additional applications in late spring and early summer, but do not fertilize after mid/late July. Winterizing: In both warm and cold climates, a 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended year-round, especially in winter. In cold climates, wait until spring to prune; warmer areas may prune in autumn if desired. Maintenance & pruning: We do recommend yearly pruning of roses, as this encourages thick, vigorous growth and the best flower coverage. Aim to cut back to just above a large, vigorous bud. The bigger the bud you cut back to, the thicker and more vigorous the growth will be. Remove any spindly stems entirely. If roses show signs of leaf spot, remove affected portions. Most roses we offer do not require deadheading, but you may do so if you wish.
She is still pretty small but very healthy. I am very pleased!
I bought this rose to go on the other side of the entrance to our patio..opposite a Sombruiel climbing rose..ought to look fabulous when Florentina is up to size!!
This rose was very difficult to find in stock any where ..so I am VERY happy with this purchase!
I have had this rose bush for a month now and it is growing quickly. The new growth is such a gorgeous deep red. It grows bushier each week. I cannot wait for the actual blooms. You can see the other pictures if you click on the one shown.
When someone says "rose", this is the flower that comes to my mind
Growing so well
It's late in the season however these climbing roses are growing really fast! I'm excited to watch these grow and have blooms next season.

So far so good. Flower is still young and I can't wait to see what it produces. Great Garden Plants offered great service.
