I love purple & blues with anything yellow, gold & orange/peach/apricot so I planted my new Warsaw Nike clem with Autumn Sunset climbing rose. This past summer was my first year with both, should be awesome when they both do their third year 'leap'. And, they bloomed together, I did something right! Hurray!

It is a beautiful cubit arejay59 but it's not mine, it's Blissfulgarden's, I just happened to start this thread . Evey has done an awesome job with special coding, I hope I can get her to eventually help us over on the Rose Cubit with a few simple features. Love the right side vendor links!

And other times a deep side splitting belly laugh followed by a good cry works wonders!

I agree Sue - those colours really pop when they are put together! I can't wait to see your third year leap as well! How exciting!!

Robin, check out the photos of some of our northern folks... many of them have beautiful climbers throughout their gardens! Perhaps some of them can give you some tips on how they keep their climbers viable during the snowbound months. I'm sure it can be done, but I've never grown roses in an extremely cold environment. The clems will do fine though, as we all are pruning with the same guidelines and starting from scratch each spring!
