  • water dropWater

    Climbing roses like 'Climbing Pompon de Paris' should be watered thoroughly once a week, particularly during their active growing season in the spring and summer. Ensure that the soil is moist to a depth of about 18 inches, which typically means applying about 1 to 2 gallons of water per plant depending on the soil type and weather conditions. During hot, dry spells, additional watering may be necessary to maintain soil moisture. Avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases, and instead use a soaker hose or drip irrigation system to deliver water directly to the root zone of the plant.

  • sunLight

    Climbing roses require full sunlight to thrive, which means at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun every day. 'Climbing Pompon de Paris' is no exception and should be planted in a location where it receives ample sunlight. Avoid locations that are shaded for a significant part of the day, as insufficient light can lead to reduced flowering and a weakened plant.

Additionally, remove any weak or spindly growth to improve air circulation and light penetration throughout the plant.

  • circleLife cycle

    The plant known commonly as Climbing Pinkie Rose typically begins its life as a dormant bare-root plant or as a young potted specimen. Upon planting, it enters a growth phase where it develops a strong root system and sprouts canes and foliage. The next stage is the flowering period, during which the rose produces abundant, small, double pink flowers in clusters, repeating this cycle throughout the growing season. As temperatures wane in the fall, the plant starts to prepare for dormancy, reducing growth and conserving energy. In winter, the plant is fully dormant, with little to no active growth, this is the time for pruning to maintain shape and health. With the return of warmer weather in spring, the cycle renews, and the plant breaks dormancy, leading to new growth and the continuation of its perennial life cycle.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • For the Rosa 'Climbing Pompon de Paris', also commonly known as the Climbing Miniature Rose, the most popular method of propagation is through semi-hardwood cuttings. This technique is generally carried out in late summer. To propagate, a gardener would select a healthy piece of semi-hardwood, a stem that is not too new or too woody, that is about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) long, and has several leaves. The cutting's lower leaves are removed, and the cut end may be dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root growth. This prepared cutting is then planted in a well-draining potting mix, with about half of its length buried in the soil. The cutting should be kept moist and in a warm location with indirect light until roots develop, which can take several weeks. Once established, it can be transplanted to a more permanent location in the garden.
