This rose is part of a series we call “mini-climbers” because it can be grown as a small-scale climber or a shrub, depending on how it is pruned or trained. The Rise Up® series includes Rise Up Amberness®, Rise Up Lilac Days®, and Rise Up® Ringo®; each one is fragrant and has stunning color that shines in the garden. 

Rise Up Emberays™ Climbing Rose grows to 3-5’ tall and 2-3’ wide. It thrives in full sun and is hardy in USDA Zones 5-8. 

Need more reasons to love Rise Up Emberays™? Well, this beautiful rose is pollinator-friendly, has great disease resistance, and makes an excellent cut flower.  

It’s best to prune in early spring, removing weak branches and ⅓ of the height and width of the rose, cutting just about ¼ of an inch above a bud. 

How to Train a Climbing Rose

Unlike vines or ivy, climbing roses don’t actually climb without your help. In order to encourage that climbing rose look, you’ll have to use wire or plant ties to help the rose out a bit. Check out the video below, where Kristina shows you how to plant and train a climbing rose. 

Have a great weekend!
