Hmmm, I'm not sure those few big glorious blooms with a nice fragrance are worth the plant they grow on. Peace and climbing Peace have been blackspot magnets for me and climbing peace has been pretty stingy for me even though I've treated it well. I'll keep it until I find someone who will give it a good home, but other than the few and far between splendors of its magnificent blooms, I'd take a pass.

Oh Tony, too true, too true! I've had climbing Peace for 3 years and in that time have only had ONE bloom. I wanted to shovel prune it this spring but my brother refuses to do so as long as it has leaves. I thought I might get to finally do so this year when it went down to a one cane wonder from the late spring freeze but noooo the dumb thing went and threw 2 new basal breaks on me. So now it has three canes with blind shoots at the top. Next spring I'm digging it out when he's not home and to heck with it.

I take your side! Pehaps you can replace it with something more productive and to your enjoyment. I have had only three blooms this spring with so far not a sign of another flower bud, but it has sent up yet another large cane from the base, as has yours. I had no blooms last year. The point of roses is not simply for foliage, but for the flowers they are famous for. Perhaps you can remind him of that and he might agree to a suitable replacement. Best of luck!!!

I recently moved to a new house in Oklahoma. In my back yard, there are 3 rose bushes, about 8-10 feet tall, all growing out of control. I trimmed one so that we could use the walkway, but I'm afraid to cut any more because I don't know anything about rose care. Two of them have bloomed once in the last couple of weeks and the other has not bloomed at all. The blooms are light yellow with pink edges. Someone told me they thought it was a Climbing Peace but we don't know for sure. What do I need to do?

It sounds likely that your roses may be Peace.  Have you gone to the entry here on Peace, and checked the various photographs of it?

I have a climbing peace rose, several years old. It was neglected for several years, then 2 yrs ago we doted on it, and it had about 40 blooms then bloomed again about 10 blooms. Last yr. we had record amt of rain early spring, and only about a dozen blooms first, then maybe 2-3. This year most of the canes are brown to brownish-green, and only one has sprouts with some new growth from base. I'm a novice and cannot find advice on how to prune and what do to in the winter. It seems every year I lose more and more canes, and the ones I prune die back. What kind of pruning tool(s) should I be using? We are in southern lower Mich.

I'm new to roses, so if this post seems naive, that's because it is! But since I live in suburban Chicago I thought my experience might behelpful to you anyway.

The first rose I ever planted was last year, a climbing peace. Not knowing any better, in November I pruned everything that 'looked' unhealthy. Then, I gently tied the remaining canes together and covered them with a styrofoam cone. This year it looks beautiful, with long healthy canes that have grown nearly 3 feet since I took the cone off in late March. The first flower just bloomed.

I just borrowed a few books from the library about growing roses in colder climates, and at least a couple of them stated that fertilizing roses after mid-August can actually cause more dieback. For what it's worth. We'll see if my rose makes it through this winter!

Hi, "I'm new to roses",
I am also new to roses and I live in Chicago. Last year I checked out all the books I could from the library on roses. This year I just bought my first book on ebay called 'Hardy Roses'. It has not arrived yet. Anyway I have put in many climbers and shrubs that I have heard are hardy. I am interested in what else you have been succesful with including the care for our winters? Looking to comunicate with some rose gardeners in the Chicago area. I have looked into rose and garden clubs but they seem time consuming with all the outings to potlucks and nursery visiting. Having three kids, youngest being two, I just have enough time, barely, for the gardening and weeding.
Thanks Amy

Hi Amy,

My first just turned 2 so I know what you mean about barely having the time to keep up the garden. I look forward to learning more with you and others on this site.

I only planted my first rose last year (after naming our daughter Rose I figured I had to), so I honestly have no idea what winter will be like on the others I've planted. I will certainly share next spring the results from the 9 climbers and 3 hybrid teas I planted this year. But it might not be much of an indication, many of them were in poor condition as I got most of them on clearance from Menards.

As it turns out, I think my climbing peace is either not a peace, or that maybe the stem that survived winter was actually a sucker. The one flower that bloomed this year was yellow with no pink. I am not just a novice to roses, but to gardening altogether!!!!!!!!

(aka new to roses)

When do I cut this Rose back, and how hard should I do it?

I hve seen the climber at a house, and they cut it way back in the fall, I think. I would imagine they would mulch it then, too. We're in NE.
