Description / Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose

Can't decide between an orange, yellow, or red climber? Get all three (at once) with Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose, a classic variety that offers ever-changing color on floribunda blooms that repeat all season. A single cluster of buds and blooms brings you a rainbow of color that changes almost daily.

Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose begins its show with pointed ovoid buds of soft red. They open in small clusters all over this well-branched climbing rose. But as Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose opens, the petals turn bright tangerine orange. Boasting a sweet scent (faint but noticeable, especially in cut flowers), they open 4 inches wide, packed with up to 28 petals.

The orange hue only lasts a brief time, however. Soon the blooms are yellow with lipstick edges of bright red. Then they turn solid red, and remain that way until they pass. Incredible.

Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose blooms very heavily in early season, with all colors present not only on the shrub, but within every cluster of flowers. Then Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose repeats several times during the summer—quicker and more abundantly if the first flowers are cut or deadheaded promptly. When other roses give up their show for the season, this climber can still be found tossing out new buds.

Introduced in 1964, Joseph's Coat has stood the test of time beautifully. No other rose in the world is like it, with its bright primary colors and free-flowering ability. Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose makes a fine choice for threading through a fence, training up an arbor or trellis, or using as a formal pillar rose. Bred from Buccaneer x Circus, Joseph's Coat is reliably vigorous, season after season.

Care for this climbing rose as you would any other: the first two or three seasons, pamper Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose and prune it only to remove dead or dying wood. After that, cut Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose back by one-third each year. This will keep it from becoming leggy, increase its branching, and help it to set more buds and blooms each season. Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose will sport foliage and flowers almost right down to the soil if it is well tended. Make the most of Joseph's Coat Climbing Rose beauty in your landscape.
