Rise Up Lilac Days® Rose Rosa x
The Rise Up® series marks the first-ever climbing roses from Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Shrubs. We call them "mini climbers," as they keep a neat, dense habit and can be grown as a climber or a shrub rose, depending on how the gardener prunes or trains them. Coming to us from the rose breeding genius of Chris Warner in the UK, these vigorous, healthy, reblooming roses create a range of new applications for Proven Winners® roses.
Rise Up Lilac Days® rose is one of the most unique roses to hit the North American market in years. Its unique lilac-blue color, powerful, heady fragrance, and versatile habit make it the ideal addition to landscapes and gardens.Disease ResistantLong Blooming

These easy-care roses defy conventional expectations of what a rose needs to thrive in your landscape. To keep it looking great, simply prune back by at least one third its total height each early spring, just as the new buds begin to emerge on the stems. Make your cut just above a thick, healthy bud, as these produce the most vigorous growth. It can also be fertilized at this time with a granular rose fertilizer. The plant may be deadheaded if desired, but this is not required for continuous bloom.Rise Up Lilac Days® Rosa x 'ChewLilacdays'
