The rose, which is deservedly called the "queen of flowers", will probably never lose her title. These flowers are so common that they are grown by almost all growers in the country. New varieties are bred every year. It is probably impossible to count them all. But some have gained particular popularity. One of these, beloved by many varieties, is the Polka climbing rose. Photos and videos with these beautiful colors are shown below.

This variety is versatile, can be grown in flower beds, as a hedge and used in vertical gardening. Many people grow it directly on the balcony or on erected arches. These roses go well with other climbing plants, and stand out very effectively against their background. So, let's take a look at all the features of this luxurious flower, and also see how to grow it correctly.

Description of the variety

This variety is special in that it is not limited to one color. Roses can be colored coral, apricot or peach. The polka grows up to two or more meters in height.

Attention! In the sun, the petals can fade and change color a little, making the flower even more beautiful.

A fully blooming flower has wavy petals, as shown in the photo.

The Polka climbing rose can bloom 2 or even 3 times in a season. In warm climates, flowering is longer. The flowers are large, can reach up to 10 centimeters in diameter. Wavy petals make roses even more lush and terry. Polka has a weak aroma, but this is not surprising for modern varieties of roses. Taking care of these flowers is not difficult at all. It takes root well after transplantation. Flowering is quite long, it can last until autumn.

Important! The variety has a high resistance to fungal diseases.

The rose tolerates winter frosts well. Abundant flowering, each flower has about 40-50 petals. This is a very good indicator for climbing roses. The leaves of this variety are dark green, large and shiny. In the video below, you can clearly see the strong bush of this plant.

The bush grows very quickly, forming tough erect stems and lateral thin shoots. There are rather large thorns on the branches. Flowers can form inflorescences of 3-5 pieces in each, but most often there are single flowers. The waviness of the petals directly depends on the climatic conditions of the region. The warmer the area, the more waves.

Planting a rose

To plant these roses, you will need to dig holes up to 50 cm deep. When planting several bushes at once, keep in mind that they will grow strongly, so 0.5-1 m is also left between them. Organic fertilizers such as manure or humus are placed in the hole ... Then a large amount of water is poured into the pit. Rose seedlings are carefully placed in the hole, spreading the roots along the bottom.

Attention! So that the roots do not break and not be damaged during planting, you should handle them very carefully.

Otherwise, the plant will spend all its energy on restoring the root system, and not on the growth of the bush.

Further, the hole is covered with soil, thoroughly filling all the voids between the roots. You need to bury the bush 10 cm above the root collar. Thanks to this, the plant will be able to put down young roots, and the roots will be protected from frost. After digging, the ground around the bush is tamped, and then the bush is watered abundantly. Now you should cut the branches of the bush at a height of about 20-25 cm.

Advice! If in the future it is planned to put the plant on the wall as a support, then it should be planted at a distance of 0.5 m to 1 m.This will allow air to freely penetrate deep into the bush.

Polka can be propagated using cuttings cut in winter or summer. They are placed in water or soil for a while to form roots. It is best to plant a germinated stalk in a pot or special box. At first, the sprout should be kept under cover, and then it can be transplanted into open ground. How to grow a rose from a cutting can be seen in more detail in the video below.

Polka rose care

Growing roses on your site, of course, you need to take care of them. All roses need is:

  • regular watering;
  • pruning;
  • top dressing;
  • weeding.

Probably the most important procedure is pruning. It is simply necessary for the normal flowering of the bush, as well as for the formation.

Warning! Without pruning, the rose can eventually turn into a regular rosehip.

Spring pruning of roses means getting rid of dried and damaged shoots. In the summertime, it is necessary to cut the withered flowers. For the winter, the bush is covered to protect it from frost. How Polka endures the winter can be seen in the video:

Organic and mineral fertilizers are used to feed the bushes. Of the mineral dressings, those that contain peat are best suited. Before a cold snap, you should stop feeding and watering.

Important! It is also not necessary to loosen the soil in the fall, the compacted soil retains heat better and will not allow the roots to freeze.

Before placing the rose under cover, you will need to remove it from the support and prune it. After that, the bush is tied up and laid directly on the ground, having previously covered it with dry leaves. From above, the rose can be covered with needles, wooden boards or special material.


Now to have roses on your site is not a luxury, but a normal phenomenon. Most gardeners grow these flowers in their garden. The Polka variety is very popular, because it is completely unpretentious, resistant to most diseases, and the appearance of flowers is simply unmatched.

I first saw the Polka variety on video from the Internet. I have never seen such unusual flowers before. I looked for a seedling in stores, and was very surprised that it was available. It turns out that this variety is very common in our area. The rose really took root and started to bloom right away.

I grew this rose from a stem cut from my relative. At that time, her bush was already about 2 meters. The flowering is simply excellent, the flowers seem to be from a fairy tale. So mine is already growing up, there are several flowers. I can't wait for him to grow taller anymore.
