Climbing Rose Fuchsia (Rosa sp.)
Plant type: Flowering ornamental perennial shrub with thorns.
Flowers / fruits / cones / seeds / nuts: These roses bloom in large bunches and will continuously bloom throughout the season, from May until November, if cared for and given proper conditions.
Attracts: Birds, bees, pollinators
Reproduction / propagation : sowing, cuttings, layering
Growth pattern: Plant grows up towards the sun and grows secondary branches from nodes. Will require assistance clinging to support structures if growing on a trellis, wall, or overhang. Will grow both horizontally and vertically. When planting, if young plants are planted close together, they will grow into each other to form a seemingly cohesive shrub, which to some is desirable, but will also increase the need for preventative disease treatment due to overcrowding.
Size: 4-10 inches, mature plants grow 10-25 ft
Plant cuttings / propagations are harvested upon order. Photos show parent plants, some are rooted already, some will require time to develop as an individual. Some cuttings will be smaller and require time to grow full size. Please allow 1-2 weeks if fully rooted, or 6-8 weeks if propagated upon order.
Roses are said to vibrate at one of the highest frequencies of all plants, at up to 320 MHz.

- Preventative anti-fungal treatment may be required in certain climates and conditions. Roses prefer to dry out fully and enjoy lots of sun that will dry up excess moisture. Moisture left on leaves for too long (whether from from a lack of sun or insufficient air flow) without proper treatment can allow for black spot and other diseases to fester.
- Benefits from consistent pruning. Spacing out limbs increases airflow and decreases likelihood of disease.
- When pruning, cut at a 45 degree angle. Cut 1/8" - 1/2" above the node.
- Nodes with 3 leaves will grow a branch that specializes as a woody stem and will have new nodes along it. Cut here if looking to expand the vegetative growth of your plant.
- Nodes with 4-5 leaves or more will grow a branch that flowers at the tip. Cut here if you are looking to maintain the current shape of your plant and stimulate flowering.
- The branch that grows from the node (whether the branch is woody or flowering) will grow up in the direction that the leaves are facing. Mindfully pruning will allow you to intentionally shape your plants to your liking, depending on the landscaping needs.
