Why We Love It

'American Pillar' will ramble up walls and fences decorating them with sprays of carmine-pink white-eyed flowers in summer.

The blooms which have an appearance like a wild rose will complement any garden.

In June and July the bees will be attracted to the joyful flowers that are followed by large and striking red rosehips.

This rose is a tall climber that will embellish your outdoor space.

As the name suggests its string stems can be trained into an impressive pillar on your patio or beside a door.

Pick a sunny or partially sunny spot by a wall or fence to provide extra support for the rose.

It's also suitable for growing into a small tree.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

'American Pillar' is happy in any type of soil as long as it's moist. Mix in some grit to improve drainage if it's too heavy. For best results, treat your rose to a balanced fertiliser and a good mulch in late winter or early spring.

Into the Ground

'American Pillar' works well in chalk, clay, loam or sandy soils. You'll need a spade, forks, a watering tool, some compost and mulch.

  1. Mix in a generous amount of compost to improve your soil.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  3. Place your rose in the hole, lining up the 'bud union' – the point where the rose stem has been grafted onto a rootstock from another plant – with the soil surface.
  4. Backfill with the soil and compost mixture, tamp down gently and water well.
  5. Add mulch to the top layer of soil to preserve moisture, keeping the area immediately around the stems clear to avoid rot.

Into a Pot

Select a container with room for your plant to spread its roots and fill it with a well-draining, fertile soil mix.

  1. Mix up your soil and fill the pot.
  2. Make a hole twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  3. Plant your rose in the hole, then backfill it with the soil mix.
  4. Re-pot every couple of years in a larger container, trimming back the roots to promote growth.
