The Rise Up® series of roses are the first-ever climbing roses from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs. We call them “mini climbers,” as they keep a neat, dense habit and can be grown as a climber or a shrub rose, depending on how you want to prune or train them. Coming to us from the rose breeding genius of Chris Warner in the UK, these vigorous, healthy, Long blooming roses create a range of new applications for Proven Winners ColorChoice roses. The flowers have a sweet semi-double form that attracts pollinators and an incredible fragrance you must sniff yourself to believe. The unique purple color hints at blue and blends beautifully with the color of your home or with other plants in your landscape.
Light: Thrives in full sun. When planted in an area that gets less than six hours of direct sun each day, it will not flower as prolifically.
Soil: Prefers moist soil that drains easily. Any period of extended sogginess will not be tolerated. In terms of pH, it prefers either neutral or acidic soils over basic soils.
Water: Average water needs. Be sure to water from below when possible.
Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose fertilizer in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable and again in late spring to give the plant a boost for rebloom.
Pruning: Pruning is recommended in early spring. Remove weak branches in the middle and half or more of the height; you can remove canes at the base if you wish to control the width as well. Make cuts just about 1/4 of an inch above a bud. Dead or damaged wood can be removed at any time, just cut back to a set of leaves.
Other: It can be used as a cut flower! For its longest vase life, cut vertically up the stem about 2″. This will help it absorb more water.
