Rosa 'John Davis'

Common Name(s):

Phonetic Spelling
RO-zuh
Description

John Davis is a very hardy, Canadian bred, climbing rose with fully double pink blooms with yellow centers and a spice fragrance. The plant grows to about 7 feet and is considered an excellent plant for covering your trellis in pink blooms all season long. It does have a lot of prickles and tends to get leggy so plant some lower growing plants in front. It can also be grown as a shrub. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. Adaptable to soil types and pH and urban conditions.

Good disease resistance
