The picture above of the New Dawn rose climber is great example of how to train climbing roses and growing climbing roses in your garden.
I particularly love climbing new dawn roses wrapped around porches and trained to grow over doors and windows in the front of the house.
The new dawn climbing rose adds massive curb appeal and loads of charm to my neighbors house and neighborhood.

The 'New Dawn', a large-flowered climber, was introduced in 1930 and became one of the World's most popular and beloved climbing roses.
It's a very vigorous rose, that needs a good strong support, that will have enough space to accommodate, the long arching, pliable canes of 25 feet or more.
Caring for New Dawn is a breeze as it is a very low maintenance plant.
And pruning Climbing New Dawn is just a matter of trimming the canes to keep them in bounds.
This climbing rose, completely covers a very large arbor in my garden, and perfumes my whole patio.
It is quite lovely and my most favorite rose in the garden.
The flowers, a soft creamy pink with a sweet fruity fragrance, appear in clusters or singly.
The foilage is attractive, medium green and glossy, and very disease resistant.
I have never sprayed this rose and it's very healthy.
It flowers in glorious profusion in early summer and then reblooms with less of a show through the rest of the season.
This rose deserves to be on the top 10 climbing roses list. Zones 5-10, height 20-30 feet.
