Crimson Cascade Climbing Roses

Crimson Cascade really is a classic climbing rose, in a fabulous punchy rich red. It's tough, fully hardy and, as the name suggests, a real 'do-er', flowering nonstop from June to mid autumn, even later, with each bloom lasting well. The flowers are a full, ruby red double design, opening from shapely elongated buds. They're lightly perfumed and the bees love them, too. The foliage is mid-green, deciduous and semi glossy. It's an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner, so you know it'll do well given a basic care plan of late-autumn pruning and a spring mulch. This is one of the most popular and floriferous red climbers, and it will bring pleasure for many weeks.

Growing Crimson Cascade Roses

Probably the most important thing for roses of any kind is good rich soil. They love clay, and a good mulch of garden compost or well-rotted manure in spring. Crimson Cascade prefers sun, too, so give it a spot in rich soil in full sun and you have the first stage of success covered. Then plant with the right support. Your first option is a wall or fence, wired or trellised up, where you can tie in the young shoots as horizontally as possible. Or train this rose up and over a sturdy arbour, pergola or rose arch. Avoid growing climbing roses in pots, as they'll soon run out of nutrients and/or water; this is one for open soil. Roses look lovely with clematis trained through them; the rich red of Crimson Cascade would pair well with a white one such as Sylvia Denny. Or twine in another climbing rose such as simple white Starlight Symphony.

Cultivation Instructions

If planting against a wall leave about 45 cm between plant and wall. Dig a hole deep enough to allow the graft to sit at soil level, with plenty of room for the roots. Improve the soil by removing large stones, weeds, roots and other rubbish and mixing in about 25% by volume of well rotted compost or manure. Wet the roots and sprinkle with Rootgrow. If planting a pot grown plant, gently loosen some of the roots before planting. Position your rose so the roots are spread out and it is set at approximately the same level in the soil as it was in the pot. The union should be level with the soil when planted. Backfill with the planting mix, firming it down as you go. Water in thoroughly. Water again a day or two later and then keep watering in dry spells.
