This Climbing Rose is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an arching and sprawling habit of growth, and can be trained to climb up suitable landscape structures. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a moderate maintenance rose that will require regular care and upkeep. Removing the spent roses (dead-heading) before they form rose hips will ensure continued reblooming throughout the summer. Shaping the bush is best accomplished in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
John Cabot Rose will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 7 feet. As a climbing rose, it can be leggy near the base and may be concealed by underplanting with lower-growing facer plants. It should be planted near a fence, trellis or other landscape structure where it can be trained to grow upwards on it, or allowed to trail off a retaining wall or slope. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This climbing vine should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

John Cabot (Venetian: Zuan Chabotto; c. 1450 – c. 1499) was an Italian navigator and explorer whose 1497 discovery of parts of North America under the commission of Henry VII of England is commonly held to have been the first European encounter with the mainland of North America since the Norse Vikings visits to Vinland in the eleventh century. The official position of the Canadian and British governments is that he landed on the island of Newfoundland.
