    Hi everyone,

    My husband just finished welding me two new arbors for the backyard. I wanted to grow climbing roses. Does anyone have any recommendations for good, hardy, disease resistant roses for zone 9?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Climbing Peace rose is nice.

    A really impressive and trouble free climbing rose is "climbing Sally Holmes"--
    "climbing Eden" is spectacular, too.

    What zone are you? I thought those looked nice in the pics, but didn't dare. Do they bloom long?

    I have an Albertine climber. Its an old rose and has beautiful pink flowers. Never had any problems with it and its a vigarous grower too.
