Clematis/Rose CombinationsClematis/Rose Combinations
June 9, 2015

Clematises and roses are ideal companions. They grow well in the same types of locations, thrive in the same types of soil, require the same amount of watering, and respond equally well to the same fertilizers.

I placed this rose in a prominent position in my garden, on an arbor at the end of our raised veggie planter boxes that we can see from our kitchen and family room. It was a good choice as the blooms are my favorite colors for my garden, blooming in clusters of apricot and a soft golden yellow. It puts on a lovely huge display of color on its initial spring flush and then continues blooming throughout the summer. The leaves are a deep rich green and for me, disease resistant. The blooms have a nice fragrance. This is a sport of the popular orange climber by Kordes, Westerland. I added a lovely deep lavender clematis as a complement.
