If you’re a low-maintenance gardener on the hunt for the perfect climbing rose and you haven’t yet met the extraordinarily vigorous ‘Polka’, you are in for a treat! It’s so easy to grow, sweetly fragrant, incredibly disease resistant, and boasts charming, ruffled apricot-peachy petals plus strong sturdy stems – making it a fabulous cut flower too. It’s still blooming like crazy in my NorCal garden in the middle of October, and I am beyond obsessed. It even seems to be resistant to rose slugs – a particularly annoying pest!
Who else is in love with this rose?
If you have found any other climbing rose that outshines ‘Polka’ please let me know!
