The Queen Elizabeth climbing rose is a true beauty no matter where it is planted in your yard or garden. This rose bush can grow up to 10 feet tall and is covered in sweet-smelling, pink blooms in summer and early fall. The Queen Elizabeth climbing rose isn't overly fussy about planting conditions, will climb almost any structure provided, and is hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 10.
Dig a hole that is 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep and 18 to 30 inches from the chosen climbing structure. Add 3 to 4 inches of organic compost to the planting hole.
Gently squeeze the sides of the rose's container to loosen the root ball. Turn the pot upside down and allow the plant to slide out. Use your fingers to loosen any compacted roots and place the root ball into the planting hole. Back fill with the loosened soil and tamp down firmly to remove air pockets.
Water until the soil is very moist, but not soggy. Add a 2-inch layer of mulch to control weeds and maintain moisture.
Use plant ties to attach the main canes (not the flowering shoots) to the chosen support system. Continue to water the rose whenever the top inch of soil no longer sticks to your finger.
