Rose Snow Princess is a floribunda climbing rose that’s smothered with bright white flowers from early summer to late autumn. It flowers freely and copiously unlike some roses that tend to offer one single blooming and require coaxing to produce a second flush. Flowers appear in June with semi-double cup-shaped blooms that have bright white dazzling petals. They are lightly fragrant with a traditional rose scent, but they’re not overpowering.
How Hardy Is Rose Climbing Snow Princess? Rose Snow Princess is hardy in all areas of the UK. Its flowers are particularly valued by rose enthusiasts because they don’t spoil in rain, and they tend to stay on the flower head during windier conditions.
How To Use Rose Snow Princess Floribunda roses have many heads of flowers that bloom in groups at the end of each stem. This means they flower thickly, providing cover for unattractive areas. Rose Snow Princess is perfect for a sunny or semi-shaded wall or mid-height fence, such as a front garden fence. It offers protection against unwanted cats but attracts pollinators such as bees and ladybirds. If you don’t have a suitable wall or fence Snow Princess will grow happily up an obelisk in the middle of a larger flower border or in a container. Rosa Snow Princess is relatively compact so it fares well in containers if you keep them watered and fed. They are the perfect size for a balcony or patio. Rosa Snow Princess’s pure white flowers won’t clash with other shades, so try combining her with any colour clematis or a passion flower for a striking summer display.
How To Care For Rose Snow Princess Like all roses, Snow Princess will flower best when mulched with well-rotted manure. If you do this in early spring it will boast bloom production and the overall health of your plant. Prune Snow Princess in autumn or early spring before new growth has started to form. Cut back around a third of the old growth to stimulate fresh, healthy new stems. Roses flower on the new year’s growth so don’t worry about ruining display, Snow Princess responds well to pruning. Cut out any dead wood or crossing stems too as this allows light and air to circulate.
Rose Climbing Snow Princess is perfect for that tricky mid-height level. It’s tough, thrives in a container, flowers all summer long and requires little care. You won’t be disappointed with a glorious pure white Snow Princess.
