CLIMBING PINKIE

Polyantha
Climbing Pinkie is the perfect rose for a screen, trellis or arch.
Moderate in growth, being 3m x 3m, and almost thornless it is clothed in thick, bright green foliage and constantly in flower.
Climbing Pinkie is a climbing sport of the lovely Pinkie – a Polyantha rose bred and introduced by USA Rose Breeder, Herbert C. Swim, in 1947.
The climbing sport was discovered in 1952 and has been very popular since. For a sport, it is exceptionally good at repeat flowering.
Typical of Polyantha roses, its 3 to 5cm semi-double flowers are borne in large, round clusters with up to 40 to 50 blooms per cluster in Spring and regular smaller clusters throughout the balance of the flowering season.
As its name suggests – its flowers are pink and the abundant blooms create a wonderful display.
This rose enjoys our hot, dry climate and is relatively disease resistant.
Its strong growth is easy to manage and train over the supporting structures.
An excellent moderately vigorous climbing rose which will provide years of pleasure.
