The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
The first year we had this rose planted in a garden under a large arbor, it spent more time blooming than growing. Its canes have finally started growing into its 12' expected length. It blooms in clusters and is nearly thornless, so would be a good rose to plant in an area where children play. `Climbing Pinkie' can also be used as a cascading shrub, if it is pruned. The blooms are pink (of course!), and semi-double with a sweet scent. A sport of 'Pinkie'.
