Autumn Sunset Climbing Rose
Rosa 'Autumn Sunset'
When it came time to get new roses this year I dutifully went to about 7 nurseries seeking my prizes. By accident one climbing rose was included in the bundle. There are a lot of climbing roses at the house with the rose garden but the house staff takes care of them. The climbing roses are all either red or white. We stuck ‘Autumn Sunset’ in the garden anyway since it couldn’t be returned and it turned out to be a nice color and plant.
Sometimes a mistake can turn into a happy accident and in the case of 'Autumn Sunset’ everything has worked out. Other than a little extra pruning it has grown well and produced a good amount of flowers.
