Rosa 'Olympic Flame'

 

Climbing Rose 'Olympic Flame'

Several climbers, mainly those derived from species roses, are exceptionally vigorous and are suitable for growing up into trees and for clothing house walls. They bear single and fragrant cream-white to yellow flowers which are carried in large clusters over a short period in mid-summer. The less vigorous climbers derived from noisette roses and the hybrid teas are suitable for more restricted areas, ideal for growing over pillars and arbours, walls fences and screens. The 3 - 5 inch flowers can be single, double or semi-double and are born in small clusters from mid-summer, sometimes recurrently. Plant all climbers close to the supports over which they will grow. 'Olympic Flame' bears abundant lightly fragrant semi-double red flowers all through summer and into autumn. Mature height and spread in 2-5 years, 3m x 2m (10ft x 6.5ft)

Planting

From Late Autumn TO Late Spring

Prepare the planting site by digging over the bed and incorporate liberal quantities of well rotted manure or compost; lighten heavy clay soil with half rotted straw. Dress the top soil with plenty of peat mixed with hop manure and chopped up turf. Fresh animal manure is harmful to the roots and should only be used in the bottom spit. Where possible, prepare the planting site a few weeks in advance. Do this in late summer for planting in autumn. Plant at any time between late autumn and late spring. Prepare a planting mixture of bone meal and moist peat. Spread out the roots in the planting hole and add the planting mixture until the roots are covered. Add soil and firm in the plant by treading.
