Clematis/Rose CombinationsClematis/Rose Combinations

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.

Like her relative The Fairy, this climbing cultivar does very well in my minimal care garden in Texas near the Gulf Coast. She has grown into a rather gangling plant with canes easily 15' long. Wherever the canes touch the ground, they root. I have lots of room, but in a small garden this rose could quickly get out of control! She is a reliable bloomer, producing a profusion of charming true pink little roses late spring to late fall. The foliage resists black spot and looks healthy even during hot summers when other roses lose most of their leaves.
