Golden Showers, Large Flowered Yellow Climber

The Golden Showers Rose is a great addition to a fence, pergola, or arbor. They have a sweet scent and work well with other red climbing roses such as the blaze, or Don Juan.

Golden Showers Climber

The flower itself opens up in wide blooms. The blooms of this rose are large size cup shaped with semi double blooms. The newly blossomed rose is deep yellow in color and it fades away to shades of cream as it grows old. This change of color of the rose from its budding to ageing gives spectacular shades of yellow to the bush. However, the formation of the flower is quite loose making the flower very fragile, thus the flower does not last long. The petals of the flowers are ruffled and beautifully shaped at the edges as well.

Breeding and History

The Golden Showers Rose was first bred by Lammerts in 1956 and belongs to the class of large modern climbers. It has received many awards since it came into existence. Golden Showers won AARS award in 1956. It bagged the Portland Gold Medal in 1957, and in 1993 it received the Garden Merit Award from the English Royal Horticultural Society.

This stunning yellow climber gives continuous blooms from the summer season until after the first frosts. The hardiness zone ranges from USDA zone 4a to 10b. Some lucky planters even say it's even suitable for zone 3. The plant needs a little care to make its look really lively. It needs to be completely exposed to sun. The soil must be well drained, rich and fertile. The proper watering and soil moisture is necessary. Frequent use of fertilizers and deep watering of the plant will help give you good flowering right through the summer.
