1953 Huntington Exclusive! EVERBLOOMING CLIMBER

Mr. Moore has donated a number of roses to The Huntington to support our fund raising. This is the first of them. The name was inspired by its code number, 6-53-3, which indicates it first bloomed at Sequoia Nursery in 1953. This is the product of an involved cross containing Hybrid Tea, Polyantha and Climbing Miniature. The plant is a large climber with double, bright yellow blooms which appear all spring, summer and into the fall. 1953 will make a wonderful rose with which to upholster a fence, or allow to grow into and through low trees. This is the pollen parent of Mr. Moore’s two lovely landscape roses, Golden Century and Sunshine Sally. The disease resistance is good, repeat bloom is excellent and the plant does get large! It’s an own root plant, so give it time to put on roots before it will want to climb, but when it does, watch out! It doesn’t require dead heading to encourage repeat bloom, which is a wonderful trait in a tall climber. May also be pruned harder to encourage use as a shrub.
