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:

DescriptionThe 'New Dawn' Climbing Rose (Rosa) is an American classic with old-world charm and proven gardening performance! This rose produces numerous semi-double to double blooms with a luscious fruit apple fragrance. Flowers begin in early summer and continue sporadically until fall. It looks stunning when trained on trellises, arbors, pergolas, fences, even walls.
With spectacular flowers, disease resistance, and excellent climbing ability, it's easy to see why it earned a spot in the Hall of Fame of the World Federation of Roses Societies! Plant this rose in your garden, and you won't be disappointed.DetailsBotanical name:Rosa 'New Dawn' Common name: Climbing rose Zone: 5 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 8-12' x 3-6' Flower color: Soft pink Foliage color: Green Season of interest: Summer-fall Bloom time: Summer Features: Privacy & screening, heat tolerant, fragrant, best for beginners Uses: Accent, cottage gardening, screen, vines and climbersHow To GrowSoil: Prefers moist, slightly acidic, well-draining soil. Roses benefit from the addition of compost, aged manure, or leafmold to the planting soil. Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Water: Try to keep the soil evenly moist, especially in their first growing season. 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 can be done after each bloom cycle. Winterizing: Spread a layer of composted manure, 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 injured branches over when new buds emerge in spring. Maintenance & pruning: Prune to remove deadwood, to control or direct growth, and to promote flowering. Wait until growth breaks in early spring before pruning. 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.
Transform Your Trellis: How to train vines
While vines may look effortless as they scamper over structures, many of them benefit from extra training to grow just the way you like. We'll break it down for each type, and even include examples from some of our great gardeners.
My rose is growing daily. I’ll soon be able to train to the fence. Can’t wait to have beautiful roses, hopefully next year.

New Dawn is already bigger than when she arrived. I will attach the first tendril to the trellis today. She is healthy and happy.
Plants arrived healthy but extremely small for the price
Hello! Thank you for your feedback. As mentioned on our site, we do ship young plants. Plant size varies widely depending on the variety that you purchase and the time of year. The important thing when it comes to purchasing plants is that they have a full, robust root system, and that's what we prioritize in our growing. The more roots a plant has, the more energy it can put into growing once it is planted in your garden. Happy Gardening!
Healthy and will be stunning!
The 2 New Dawn roses arrived very healthy and I immediately bought 2 beautiful trellises for them. They are on each side of the garden path and I can't wait to watch them grow and make the garden gorgeous!
