Product Description

Rosa 'American Pillar' is a robust, vigorous rambling rose that is a star garden performer, erupting in a cloud of bloom almost all summer and well into autumn

Its single deep-pink flowers are produced in abundance on new growth, giving you a magnificent show of blooms, each highlighted with a white eye at the centre, creating a beautiful contrast to its glossy green leaves.

Growing up to 8m (26ft) this climber is great when grown up a support such as trellis or an obelisk and will happily scramble up into a tree if given the opportunity. When established it's drought tolerant and will even tolerate light shade, making it perfect for those hard-to-cover north facing features in the garden!

Supplied as a 4L potted plant, ready for planting straight out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Rosa 'American Pillar':

  • Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought dry.
  • Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is just below soil level.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
  • Climbing roses need plenty of support and should be tied on to wires, trellis or similar.

 

Aftercare Information for your Rambling Rose 'American Pillar':

  • Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry.
  • Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in in late-March/April and again late July.

 

Pruning Advice for Rosa 'American Pillar':

  • Prune in October or November. To prune, remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.
  • Tie in any new shoots and prune any flowered side shoots back by two thirds of their length.
  • Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
  • Prune after flowering between December and February, cutting back long shoots by a third and cutting back side shoots by two-thirds.
