New Dawn Rose - Modern Climbers
The New Dawn rose is a large flower climbing rose. The creamy pink can make it a subtle addition to your garden. I love them draped over an arbor or rose trellis in the back yard. They add color without overwhelming you and have a nice pleasant scent.
The rose was first bred by Somerset Rose Nursery in the United States in 1930. It was then introduced in market by Henry A. Dreer the same year. Climbing roses available today are hybrid form of the traditional bush rose of the same type with the climber. The New Dawn rose is the hybrid climber of Rosa Wichuraiana or commonly known as Wichuraiana rambler. The rose is also available in the market under the name of ‘Everblooming Dr. Van Fleet rose’. It has also been awarded ‘The World’s Favourite Rose’ award in 1997 by the World Federation of Rose Societies.
The bloom of the flower opens up in a large cup shape with 30 – 35 petals on an average. The blooms appear in clusters or singly on the stem and are fully doubled . The color of the budding flower is soft pink but fades off to pearly pink or cream when fully grown. The New Dawn rose is blessed with a pleasant fruity fragrance. The bloom size of the flower is generally 4 inches in diameter, with prolific blooms in the spring season.. The blooms are then repeated moderately throughout the season. The foliage of the plant is very attractive with a Medium green color and nice glossiness.
Allow a decent space for the climber to grow and then you see the magic created by it in your garden. The New Dawn rose is a vigorous rose and can be easily trained to climb different structures, walls, pillars, and spaces in your garden and patio. This vigorous climber can easily attain the height of 20 feet when provided with strong support. The rose is ideal to fill up empty spaces of your outdoor and garden with the help of structures like trellis or pergolas. Along with the attributes of being a vigorous climber the fragrance of the rose is a major plus point of the New Dawn rose. The pastel pink color and sweet fragrance of the rose will spread a new breeze of liveliness in your garden
This rose plant is highly resistant to disease. It is a very low maintenance plant. The plant does not require much pruning other than little trimming and removal of dead canes and leaves. Some pruning will be required to guide the plant to spread over a desired structure. The plant should be placed in a well drained soil. Make sure the climber is exposed to ample amounts of sunlight throughout the day and has good air circulation. Regular watering is very essential. You need to sometimes tie the stems of the climber with a cloth loosely to help it get support while climbing. A little care will pay off great rewards in case of this climbing rose. The rose is quite hardy with sustainability of USDA zone 5a to 9 b.
The beautiful large bloom along with a gorgeous scent and the property of being an excellent climber makes the New Dawn rose a popular choice.
