‘Florentina’ Transplant Update

Since relocating my climbing Kordes rose, known as ‘Florentina’, last fall, she is showing positive signs of healthy growth this March. In a previous post, I noted that Florentina was failing to thrive on my beach balcony, but after permission from the HOA, I was able to transplant her into a sunny garden bed here in my condominium community.

Thus far, the foliage looks healthy and she certainly is growing sprawling canes. I hope to see her produce luscious blooms of brilliant red in the near future!

Potted Climbing Roses

Managing a climbing rose from a pot is proving to be a bit more challenging than I anticipated. Unlike growing a climber from the ground, I am having trouble getting my climber to bloom. I learned though the more petals the rose produces, the more sunlight the plant needs. After trying everything possible, I suspect perhaps my potted climbing rose isn’t getting enough direct sunlight. I moved her to a different location with the high hopes she will finally blossom. Sometimes relocation is all one needs.
