I just acquired a NOID yellow/orange climbing rose and some additional cuttings. It could be heirloom. All I know is that it is not grafted and is a survivor. It was found growing in an abandoned field with some old growth pear trees. I want to make a rose arch with it. Should I start by planting a rose plant in either side of the arch or only use a single rose plant for the whole arch?
Keep calm... and plant something.

It likely depends on the height of the arbor/arch and the particular rose and the height it will grow. Depending on the rose variety, it may cover the entire arch, or for symmetry, you may need to plant one on either side. Shrug!

Thanks. I guess I'll plant one on either side and take one out later if I need to. I tip my hat to you.

Not all climbers are tall enough to produce canes long enough to make it up one side of the arch and down the other. When I built this arch and gate many years ago, I planted Joseph's Coat on the left side, and Berries 'n' Cream on the right side. (Incidentally, that's a decorative ceramic tile of a pine tree set into the center of the gate.)

That's beautiful Mike! I see you're in zone 6b -- one and a half zones warmer than where I live in central Michigan. What kind of winter protection do you use for the climbers?

I've never used any winter protection for the climbers... survival of the fittest!

Thanks. Here's another view when it was draped in clematis.

Beautiful as well but I think the roses are really stunning and show off your wonderful archway and gate!
