Rosa American Pillar Rambling Rose The Rosa American Pillar is far more hardy than most rambling rose bushes. It grows to a height of 300 to 600 centimeters. Also called the Rose American Pillar this Rambling Rose is an excellent climber for garden structures, fences, arbors, pergolas or walls. It features long, arching branches that boast a bevy pink and white flowers. The rambler rose cultivar bears a striking resemblance to wild rose bushes.
The blooms of the Rambling Rose are singular and feature bright pink petals with a white core. Each rose blossom measures about 5.5 centimeters across. The brightly coloured flowers appear in clusters along the arching canes of the rose bush. Unfortunately, unlike other rose bushes such as Aloha, the blossoms of the Rosa American Pillar boast no fragrance, but the rambler’s distinct beauty makes up for its lack of heady perfume. The rambler produces flowers virtually non-stop from spring until autumn. Following flowering, Rose American Pillar develops bright red hips that bear a striking resemblance to cherries. The hips are a favourite foods source for birds and woodland creatures. They provide visual interest, especially during the autumn months.
The Rose American Pillar grows and flowers best when planted in full sun. It can tolerate shade but requires at least six hours of sun per day to develop properly. A shady location will also diminish flower production and can make the rambler take on a lanky appearance. Also, the lack of sunlight can promote powdery mildew. For best growth, choose a planting location that is well-draining and rich in organic matter. Keep the soil evenly moist to encourage the rambler to develop a strong root system. Once established, it can withstand periods of short drought. To promote flowering, fertilize the Rose American Pillar in the spring and fall using a general purpose fertilizer or rose-specific fertilizer. Follow the directions on the fertilizer’s label for application ratios.
Rosa American Pillar can be pruned in the late summer for regular maintenance. If you want to severely trim back the rambler then you should wait until late autumn or early winter.
Dr. Van Fleet developed the Rose American Pillar cultivar in 1907 and since its early inception, this variety of rambling rose has become a popular addition to many gardens around the world. Its vigorous growth, reliability, and hardy nature make it virtually care free. If you are seeking a profuse rambler that puts on a non-stop flower display all season than the Rambling Rose might be the perfect addition to your garden. Plant it in a location where its sheer size and breathtaking beauty can truly be appreciated.
