This Moonlight rose is quite exceptional for its many changing colours, beginning with soft orange or apricot buds when the blooms first form fading to a rich yellow as it opens and gradually the edges of the petals take on a soft pink tone as it ages. The long-lasting blooms with a strong fruity fragrance can be used for cut flower arrangements. This climbing rose is a very vigorous grower and has a strong resistance to diseases such as blackspot and mildew.

How to take care of Kordes Climbing Rose Moonlight
Choose a sunny site that gets at least 4 to 5 hours of sun. Soak any bare root roses in a bucket of water overnight before planting to help rehydrate them. For potted roses, water the pot thoroughly and let them sit in the water until ready to plant. Never plant Kordes Climbing Rose Moonlight during frost. If planting cannot take place immediately, keep Kordes Climbing Rose Moonlightin the packaging in a cold but frost-free place. Remove any stones and clumps and loosen the soil a little, dig a hole around approx. 30cm away from the fence or wall. For best results add well-rotted manure or compost to the soil. If planting bare root roses, form a small mound of soil in the centre of the planting hole. Plant Kordes Climbing Rose Moonlight so that the neck of the rose is about 5 cm below the ground. Fill the planting hole in and sprinkle some bone meal around the plant before pressing down firmly. Always water well after planting. Never let the rose fertiliser come in direct contact with the roots, there needs to be at least 10 cm between the roots and rose fertiliser. When Kordes Climbing Rose Moonlight is established and has filled the space available, excessive growth can be pruned back at any time. In late autumn or winter, flowered side shoots can be pruned back by two-thirds of their length. Use special Fertilizer regularly to encourage new growth during the following growth season. Climbing roses are heavy and need a definite path to grow, tie them up as soon as they start growing. You should water your climbing roses at least once a week.
