The Rise Up™ series of roses are the first-ever climbing roses from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs. They call them "mini climbers," as they keep a neat, dense habit and can be grown as a climber or a shrub rose, depending on how the gardener prunes or trains them. Coming to us from the rose breeding genius of Chris Warner in the UK, these vigorous, healthy, reblooming roses create a range of new applications for Proven Winners roses.

The flowers of Rise Up Amberness™ rose look exquisitely sculpted, with wavy amber-colored petals surrounding a classic orange rose bud shape. They open to a full bloom with appealing golden stamens in the center. The exceptionally fragrant flowers appear all summer without deadheading. Sturdy stems allow this beautiful, versatile rose to be grown as a climber or shrub, as the gardener prefers.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Although the Proven Winner roses are resistant to powdery mildew and black spot, proper care and siting is important. Plant where it will get at least six - and ideally, eight or more - hours of bright sun each day. Avoid wetting the leaves when you water, or if you have a sprinkler system, adjust the head so that it waters the soil rather than the plant.  To keep it looking great, simply prune back by at least one third its total height each early spring, just as the new buds begin to emerge on the stems. Make your cut just above a thick, healthy bud, as these produce the most vigorous growth. If desired it can also be fertilized at this time.  The plant may be deadheaded if desired, but this is not required for continuous bloom.
