Rapid repeat bloom cycles and a graceful, well-branched habit endear this bright pink climber to gardeners. The flowers have exquisite hybrid tea form, with a full, old-fashioned look and zesty aroma. The first blooms usually appear in late spring and continue in generous waves into autumn!

'Social Climber' is destined to be popular wherever it's grown. Reaching a mature size of 6 feet high and 4 feet wide, it's ideal for any size garden, adding delightful color for never getting out of hand. Each 4-inch bloom opens from an attractive pointed, ovoid bud and is comprised of about 40 petals with a lovely spicy fragrance. The dark green foliage looks great even when it isn't dotted with the dark pink flowers, bringing welcome color to arbors, trellises, fences, and walls. Plant this climbing rose in moist, well-drained soil in full sun.

Prune in early spring, cutting out dead or diseased wood and thinning weak canes. It can be pruned to shape after its summer bloom is over but before fall arrives. Check soil moisture weekly, and water in the morning, if possible. It does not react well to standing water. In northern climates, put a 3- to 4-inch layer of mulch around the base of the plant before the ground freezes. Var: 'JACweave'. Zones 5-10.
