Seven Sisters Roses

This rose was first released in Western society way back in 1817.Before that though, it was originally from either China or Japan, the exact origin seems to vary.. It took a few years to gain in popularity but eventually in the mid century it started to take off. So much so, that nurseries and florists started selling knock-off versions of the rose. As a result, its true breeding line and traits became confused. Many painters enjoyed using this as a subject, included the French legend Redoute.

Now, you will see this plant flourishing in the Southern parts of the United States. It was finally named the Seven Sisters because of its multiple colored blooms. It looks like many flowers were growing together, or seven sisters together. That may also have been a translation from the old Oriental.

The main attraction with the Seven Sisters rose is the multi-colored blooms. You'll get a variety, from reddish, to pink, to even some magentas. Its a little bit of a wild card. The blooms are smaller though, usually no more than 2 inches or so. This is a very vigorous climber, sometimes getting up to 20 feet tall.

For the most part, this flower is good for a single bloom only per season.

While this is known as a vigorous climber, it really meant for zones 7 and above. Below that, and it tends to be more bushlike.

As mentioned above, it only blooms once, so save pruning until after that period.

It's also weak against fungus and especially mildew. This can be mitigated by placing it in full sun if possible.
