Looking at these roses, one involuntarily recalls the canvases of masters who lived in the 17th or 18th century. The pink buds depicted on them are as dense, densely double-colored as those of Pierre de Ronsard. Although the described species is not at all ancient, but by creating it, the authors sought precisely such a perception of the flower.
Creation history and names
The described species was created by the French company Meilland International in the 1985th year. It was this year that the 400th anniversary of the death of the well-known in France poet Pierre de Ronsard, in memory of which the rose got its name, Pierre de Ronsard, was celebrated. To get acquainted with European flower growers, Meilland's agent in Germany, Klaus Strobel, was asked to introduce the plant under a different name, since the French poet was not so well known to the rest of Europe. Therefore, the beautiful plant, associated with a paradise flower, has new names Eden Climber and Eden Rose (Eden Rose 85 or 88 - the numbers indicate the year of creation and registration). Registered a novelty called MELviolin. The described variety should not be confused with others bearing almost identical names - Eden Rose, a hybrid tea, bred in 1950, and the climbing form of Eden Rose, known as Eden Rose, CI, created in 1962.
The Pierre de Ronsard variety is the first in the Romantika series. This series combines a group of plants with dense flowers, resembling the "old" form, and possessing the strength and health of modern varieties. Our heroine belongs to climber - climbing roses with strong and tough shoots. The untitled maternal form, derived from the crossing of the Dance des Sylphes and Handel climbing large-flowered roses, was treated with Pink Wonder floribunda pollen, CI.
During the years of its existence, the heavenly beauty has won many awards. In 2000-2001, she was awarded 5 times by the American Rose Society in the "Climber" category. According to the results of the survey for 2006, conducted among participants from 37 countries, Pierre de Ronsard received an honorable place in the Hall of Fame of the World Association of Rose Companies.
In the patent application, the plant is indicated as a shrub, not too vigorous, with a height of 150 to 300 or 350 cm. The bush is branched, up to 200 cm in volume. It looks compact. The shoots are thick, arcuately curving, although rather rigid, spines are rarely located. The shoots are great for creating arched structures or entwining any other forms. The leaves are large, dark green, hard to the touch, semi-matte surface, serrated edges.
Flowers Pierre de Ronsart highly decorative, possessing the charm of antique roses. The size is impressive - the average diameter is 9 - 10 cm. But the buds of the first wave can have an even larger diameter - almost 15 cm. The stalk bears from one to three cupped, spherical-shaped buds, with long petals, the process of blooming is slow. The color combination is very successful, gentle. Petals are cream or ivory, edges are deep pink or carmine-pink. It should be noted that the color gamut is sometimes changeable, the inner petals can be pink, the outer white, sometimes with a greenish tint. Flower buds are densely-dense, dense and heavy, each having about 55 to 60 petals (and even more), so the flower brush hangs under its weight, which does not spoil the overall impression, on the contrary, it is attractive.
Pierre de Ronsard refers to the re-flowering species. The first flowering of roses affects the abundance and large-flowered. The bush is literally from top to bottom covered with delicate flowers. After the first wave of flowering subsided, there comes a period when the flowers are smaller and their size is more modest. But the process of their education does not stop, they appear constantly. Created for the Mediterranean countries, in which a hot and dry climate prevails, our heroine is able to show all the beauty of a fully blooming flower. But, unfortunately, in a cool and humid climate, flowers often fade, without revealing to the end.
- The shoots of Pierre de Ronsard are growing slowly, so you can judge about the decorativeness of the bush, from the age of 3,
- the flowering period is quite long - you can admire gently colored buds from June to September,
- Usually, rose scent causes migraine attacks or dizziness in many. But Pierre de Ronsard has a very light fragrance, almost invisible,
- frost resistance is average, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), corresponds to zone 6, that is, bushes can withstand frost at -23.3 ° C,
- resistance to diseases is high, especially to black spot and powdery mildew,
- flowers may suffer from increased humidity and will not fully open.
When planting a lover of heat in a flower bed, try to allocate for her the most sunny part, which is protected from drafts, but at the same time periodically blown by a light breeze. The best time to plant is spring. Before planting, the soil is carefully dug up, fertilized, if necessary, the level of acidity leads to neutral indicators. In the spring, before the appearance of buds, the rose is fed with nitrogen. During the flowering period, the queen of the flower garden should be pampered with phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It is best to select universal balanced fertilizers, so as not to be confused in dosages. Since Pierre de Ronsard is able to live for 15 years, select a place for her carefully, having thought through the composition beforehand. It can be planted both as a single plant and in group plantings. Do not forget that for a spreading bush, the planting pattern must be at least 2 × 2 meters, otherwise thickening cannot be avoided, and this will negatively affect the flowering of the rose. Be sure to spend the autumn pruning, removing faded shoots 3 - 5 years, the growth of this year, shorten by 1/3. In the warm regions of the bushes for the winter is not covered, but in a cool whip gently removed and placed on the litter of straw. Top cover with dry leaves and spruce branches.
Pierre de Ronsard will bring a romantic touch to your garden, make it more comfortable. Climbing plant with pleasure used in landscape design, because behind the floral wall you can hide any unsightly fence or blank wall of the house. Flowers showed themselves perfectly in the cut, in the vase they are long. Unpretentiousness and resistance to disease of roses is very easy care for her.
Rosa Pierre de Ronsard
Most varieties of this series belong to tea and hybrid roses, but the beginning of it put a great climber ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ (“Pierre de Ronsard”), created by originator Jacques Mushott in 1985.
Rosa, who received the registration name ‘MEIviolin’, entered the trading network under the name of the French Renaissance humanist poet Pierre de Ronsard. However, as often happens with roses, she subsequently received other names. According to the representative of the company "Meiyan" in Germany, the unearthly beauty of this climbing miracle was comparable to flowers that grow only in paradise. And so it appeared: 'Eden Rose 85 ’,‘ Eden Climber TM ’-“ paradise flower ”.
"Pierre de Ronsard" refers to the group ‘Large - flovered Climber’ - large-flowered climbing roses. Her whole appearance is aristocratic, it’s not for nothing that the prefix 'de' is present in her name, even though the great Ronsard gave it to her rose! In full bloom, it represents a neat shrub in height from 1. 50 to 3 meters, expanding in width to 2 m. Relatively flexible arcuate shoots are covered with dark green foliage, few thorns.
Elegant elegant flowers with a size of up to 10-12 cm, a delicate cream-white shade with a pink center and greenish outer petals, appear 1-3 on the stem. A tightly twisted bud looks very impressive, but when fully opened, it takes on a cupped shape, exuding a subtle scent.
Rose 'Pierre de Ronsard' - a masterpiece in the selection of roses, possesses excellent health, does not suffer from black spot and powdery mildew, perfectly endures the heat. Created for the climate of 6-9 zones of the USDA, it nevertheless works well in the Moscow region and blooms in the short Siberian summer. The declared weak resistance to rain manifests itself not everywhere and not always: in wet weather, not all buds can bloom, but their middle is not rotting, and the flower itself is kept on the stem until 10-14 days.
Pierre ("Pierre"), as gardeners often call it, is a very changeable variety: depending on the place of growth, the rose either gives a second wave of flowering, or produces single flowers, or does not bloom at all. In some gardens, she demonstrates her exquisite flowers in the first year of planting, in others she gathers strength for several years. But gardeners are ready to wait, writing it down as a pet and dreaming of planting it even in the 4th zone.
Trimming and tying
The scourge on the support is fixed arcuately, horizontally or at an angle, deflecting them left and right. It stimulates the formation of flower shoots., which means lush flowering.
The first two years of bush life is enough to remove dry branches in spring, and in summer - withered shoots. Subsequently, formative pruning is carried out: the lateral growths after flowering are shortened by about two thirds and old and thin stems are cut out every 3-4 years.
In vaccinated copies Be sure to remove the wild shoots that appear below the grafting site, which over time can drown out the graft. They are easy to recognize by smaller and lighter leaves and the presence of small thorns.
Watering and feeding
The rose bush is watered abundantly under the root once every 3-5 days, in the morning or in the evening, giving the earthman to be well soaked in water. It is important to avoid moisture on the leaves.
Rose spends a lot of power on the abundant and re-flowering, so fertilizing it needed. They are carried out in several stages:
- Organic fertilizers (best of all compost, aged manure or horn chips) are applied as soon as the earth thaws or in the fall,
- until mid-July - fertilizing with long-acting mineral fertilizers,
- nitrogen fertilizers are dosed only at the beginning of the growing season.
Shelter for the winter
For a successful rewintering rose since September, reduce watering and do not cut off faded flowers. Before the very shelter, it is better to cut the leaves (do not pick them!) and burn them to remove the spores of the mushrooms.
Bushes spud earth to a height of 30-40 cm, lash gently removed from the supports and bend as close as possible to the ground, covered with white agrofiber of maximum thickness. A plastic wrap is laid over the top, bending the edges during the winter thaws. If the rose grows a bush, it is a little tied up and made a tapered cover.
Decorative use of roses Pierre de Ronsard is very diverse. The magic spectacle is an arch or pergola, a small arbor or wall of the house, decorated with a sea of slightly drooping colors. In this case her best companions will be:
- large-flowered hybrid clematis, varieties of which are selected so that they bloom with a rose at one time,
- honeysuckle capricole - it will give this duet a stunning aroma,
- grapes - his foliage will cover luxurious flowers in extreme heat.
Important: for a successful partnership, clematis is placed next to a rose that has been growing in this place for at least two years. If they are planted at the same time, the root systems of the plants must be divided so that the rose can grow stronger.
The bush ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ grows slowly, and in unfavorable climatic conditions it remains a low peach. Then, surrounded by suitable companions, it will become the center of a wonderful flower arrangement. For example, half a meter from her you can plant lavender: unlike roses, she loves scanty soil, so the ground, taken from the planting pit, is mixed with sand.
"Pierre de Ronsard" is grown on the trunk. At the foot of the fabulous tree with a waterfall of soft pink flowers, you can plant perennials such as: purple catnip, delphinium, sage, veronica, gentian or silver wormwood. From annual plants, you can choose Bonar vervain, cosme or nigella. Advice: small-flowered plants are very beautifully combined with large, lush flowers of roses.
For its beauty and disease resistance, this masterpiece rose was not only loved by gardeners, but was awarded several international awards. In 2000-2001, in the United States several times marked as the best climbing rose-climer. And in 2006, with the title “The most beloved rose in the world”, she was listed in the Hall of Fame of the World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS).
Rose varieties Pierre de Ronsard (Pierre de Ronsard) - climbing, rose of the world. Maybe die. It should be noted that the branches are tough enough, so it looks more like a bush. It grows up to 3.5 meters in height and up to 2 meters in width. The shoots are characterized by slow growth, in connection with this decorativeness of the bush can be seen after three years of age.
The leaf plate is large, rigid, saturated green. It is not enough thorns. The flowers are large, 7-10 cm in diameter, sometimes up to 12 cm. The shape is cupped or rosette. Petals are long, about 55-65 pieces on one inflorescence. Flowers do not bloom quickly, appear singly.

Next on the photo you can see what the rose looks like Pierre de Ronsard.
Rose deservedly takes its place of honor in the encyclopedia of roses. This variety can be called royal, which brought the French breeding company «Mielland». In 1985, in Paris, this variety was named after the famous medieval poet Pierre de Ronsard, who was celebrated the 400th anniversary after his death that same year. In France, the name of the poet is known to all, but in the rest of the world - not very. Therefore, the representative of the company "Mielland" Klaus Strobel insisted on the second name "Eden Rose" or "Eden Climber".
What is the difference from other species?
Not only external data varieties deserve praise, but other characteristics are no less obvious:
- excellent immunity, resistance to fungal diseases,
- high tolerance to all pests
- drought tolerance,
- very long and abundant flowering.
Variety is re-flowering or remontant.
The flowering period for roses begins from mid-June and lasts until the first frost. This species was bred for a warm Mediterranean climate.therefore, the flowering is incessant, the inflorescences bloom one by one, while not losing aesthetics under the influence of wind and precipitation. However, in the northern regions of our country, as a rule, there is not enough heat, and some of the buds remain unopened.
Before and after flowering
With the arrival of spring, they are fed with nitrogen-based fertilizers, and with the appearance of the first buds, nitrogen cannot be used. Instead, it is possible to use liquid mullein along with potash-phosphate fertilizers.
Pierre de Ronsard as well as other varieties requires: regular loosening of the soil, pruning of dry lashes, removal of weeds, watering. After flowering climbing rose must be correctly cut. Cut off faded buds, grassy shoots, nip growing shoots over 3-4 buds to stimulate shoots.
Varietal description and characteristics
Pierre de Ronsard Climbing Rose can be recognized by the large terry buds of a delicate white-cream color with a pinkish middle. The lower leaves of the flower are light, the middle ones are more intensely colored, so that the buds look very bright against the background of dark green leaves. Rose belongs to the remontant varieties, blooms several times during the season. At the first flowering, the buds are larger (up to 12 cm in diameter), with each subsequent wave their size slightly decreases to 8-10 cm. The flowering is plentiful and long.
An adult bush grows up to 3 m in height, however, the plant can reach such sizes only in 3-4 years, since it does not differ in intensive growth. The shoots are long, flexible, with a small number of thorns, perfectly wound around arched structures, and can also trail on any support. The leaves are rather large, hard, glossy, dark green above, slightly lighter below. Such varietal features contribute to the fact that the rose of this variety is more often used in vertical gardening of garden and household plots.
High decorative qualities are not the only virtue of the variety. Rose Pierre de Ronsard is quite winter-hardy, despite the fact that it was bred for cultivation in the Mediterranean climate. Rose rarely exposed to diseases and pest invasion. In a mild climate, it blooms continuously and very lushly, in colder climates, the flowering may not be as abundant, and the flowers are not so large.
Scheme and rules of landing
For maximum growth and flowering, climbing roses need a lot of sunlight, so the area for planting should be well lit and ventilated, but without drafts. Regarding the size of the plot, for most climbing grades, planting according to the 50x50 scheme is acceptable, since bushes usually grow upwards, but given the fairly wide (up to 2 m) crown of Pierre de Ronsard, it is better to plant it according to the 2x2 meter scheme. Поскольку чаще всего розу высаживают одиночно поблизости какой-нибудь архитектурной формы, то проблем с расстоянием не возникает, но при групповой посадке следует соблюдать рекомендуемую схему. В противном случае куст образует густые заросли, что приведет к снижению цветения и затруднит уход за ним.
Посадка розы осуществляется весной – ориентировочно вначале или середине мая. Shortly before planting the soil should be dug up, remove all debris, weeds. The soil for roses should have a neutral acidity.
If the acidity of your soil is far from this indicator, it should be leveled. After 1-2 weeks, wells of 40x40 cm in size are dug out at the prepared site; with a wider root system of the seedling, the size of the pit increases. 0.5 compost or humus buckets are put into each well, and 0.5 buckets of water are poured. When water is absorbed, fertilizers should be sprinkled with a thin layer of earth to prevent direct contact of the roots with fertilizers.
Further, the seedling is placed in the center of the planting hole, the roots are leveled and the plant is covered with earth with the help of hands, periodically compacting the ground. The planted shrub is carefully watered again, making sure that the soil does not erode. If the seedling has not been trimmed, this should be done immediately after planting. If desired, the soil around the bush can be covered with mulch. It is better to plant the seedling in the evening, but the rose watering likes the morning ones.
Care for climbing species
Most of the activities for the care of a climbing rose are no different from the care of other varieties of this crop, with the only difference that the Pierre de Ronsard rose needs support. It is necessary to establish a support so that it does not create a shade for a bush, because the sun loves the rose very much and its flowering depends on it to a certain extent. But you also need to systematically monitor the density of the bush, direct and fix the shoots.
The rest of the care is in the standard procedures:
- rare but abundant watering (1-2 buckets per bush) - if the flowers wither to an abnormal heat, watering should be done more often,
- shallow loosening of the ground in a wheel circle and removal of weeds - soil mulching will eliminate the need to carry out these activities,
- prophylactic treatments for diseases - with a 1% solution of Bordeaux liquid, the whips are treated in early spring and autumn, before shelter for the winter,
- removing faded buds throughout the flowering season,
- the growth and flowering of the bush depends on timely fertilizers, so you need to feed 3-4 times per season: in early spring - nitrogen fertilizers, before the start of flowering - a complex mineral mixture, at the end of summer - phosphorus and potassium,
- since the bush blooms several times, then during each flowering period organic matter (liquid droppings, mullein) can be applied, as well as to mulch the soil with peat,
- pruning takes place in spring and after flowering: spring pruning involves removing damaged shoots, when shoots are removed, all shoots of 3-5 years of age are removed, and shoots of this year are shortened by a quarter - buds will be formed next year.
For the winter you need to cover the rose. To do this, the whips are carefully removed from the support, unrolled, and placed on a bed of wood or straw - litter is used to prevent the shoots from contacting wet and cold soil. The laid whips from above are covered with dry leaves or spruce branches. In the harsh and snowy winter of the lash it is recommended to additionally cover with dense material.
Use in landscape design
Rose Pierre de Ronsard has always been a prima among climbing varieties, so its use in landscape design is widespread. The shrub of this rose grows beautifully upwards, it is flexible and pliable, and if the rose is properly shaped and guided, then it can not only decorate garden and architectural forms, but also become the central elements in the landscape of the site.
A rose like Pierre de Ronsard can be applied in completely different landscape styles. It is ideal for the design of arches, columns, arbors.
Planted along the wall, it will decorate the house, and along the fence or fence it will form a thick hedge, covered with delicate numerous inflorescences. As a support for this rose, you can use decorative trees: rowan, broom, yew and others. Ideally, if there is a shrunken tree on the plot, a sapling can be planted next to it, and in just two years you will have an extraordinarily beautiful and original landscape element - a flowering pink tree.
Using a rose in vertical gardening, pay special attention to pruning lashes, as the decorative qualities of the plant depend on it. Pruning for a climbing rose is not only the formation of a bush, but also a way to enhance flowering, make the rose more luxurious and long blooming. Remember that the formation of buds occurs mainly on the shoots of last year, so pay special attention to cutting these lashes, and then the rose will delight you for many years with abundant and long flowering.
Characteristics of the variety, the choice of seedlings
Rose "Pierre de Ronsard", which won a place in the Hall of Fame of the world society of rose breeders, refers to standard, climbing grades. Shrubs can grow up to 3 meters, while demonstrating abundant flowering. The average lifespan is 15 years.
The bush grows to the maximum height after 3 years - the growth is not rapid, but stable. The plant is a large-flowered, ten-centimeter bud "assembled" from 70 petals. Outside, the petals are a pale cream color, to the center the color turns pink, becomes more saturated. Leaves also look impressive - they are glossy, strong, densely "sitting" on the climbing stems. The shoots are strong, tough at the base, bending - closer to the edges.
When buying rose seedlings, there are several factors to consider:
- Sapling age. Better take root 2-3 years old.
- Roots should be without rot, leaves of uniform color, without dryness and spots.
- Type of root system - grafted or with a "native" root. It is necessary to clarify with the sellers, where it is better to take root bush - in the open ground or in the greenhouse.
Rosa Pierre de Ronsard owes its name to the French romantic poet. The appearance of pale pink buds really evokes romantic thoughts, associating with feminine grace and subtlety of nature. Although appearances are at times deceptive, endurance, disease resistance and cold resistance are beyond the seeming fragility. The last factor is still quite conditional, because the rose was bred for growth in the Mediterranean climate. Therefore, in cold regions, these flowers are best planted in greenhouses.
Attention! The shape of the bud in the southern latitudes is round, in the middle lane - in the form of a rosette.
A few more rose features:
- long flowering
- lack of flavor,
- almost does not suffer from harmful insects.
Climbing bushes are actively used by florists and landscape designers. Adult tall plant suitable for decoration of fences and decorative arches.
Planting and care
The key point when planting a royal rose is the choice of location. It should be sunny. It is necessary to provide high support - to land at the fence, you can build a decorative arch or high wattle. The soil should be loose and nutritious.
Before planting, make sure that the groundwater is deeply deposited. The roots of the plant grow to a depth of 2 meters - the plant will quickly die from erosion. The landing hole should be not less than 0.5 m, in which manure and organic fertilizers are pre-laid.
Feed must be in other periods of growth:
- in the spring - ash or ready-made nitrogen compounds,
- before flowering - minerals
- during flowering rose need organic.
For successful growth and flowering soil around the plant must be loosened.
Council To control weeds and further enrich the soil, it is recommended to mulch the rose. For the mixture fit sawdust, paper pieces, dried grass, compost.
For the recovery of the plant, it must be cut several times a year. After flowering, in the fall - almost a quarter, in the spring - to remove dried branches. For winter, the plant must be closed, with the exception of representatives of the southern regions.
“Favorite” rose Pierre de Ronsard is a purchase that no gardener will regret. With easy care, in a few years the flower will turn into a beautiful “living wall”. One rose can replace the whole garden.
What to do if not dissolved?
Usually, lack of flowering foreshadowed the wrong arrangements for the care, or the flower is badly moved away from winter. To restore beauty, you should normalize the process of care, observing the rules relating to this type of climbing roses, as well as competently perform preparations for the winter period.
Pierre de Ronsard grows well upwards, so it is often used to decorate various buildings, architectural structures. Let's use a flower to create elements of vertical gardening in parks, gardens, open-air cafes. If there is a desire to create an atmosphere of medieval France in the area, the variety Pierre de Ronsard definitely suits.
Choosing a place
Basically, all climbing roses are recommended to be planted in places well-lit by the sun.protected from drafts and cold wind. Due to the heat and light the plant will receive the maximum increase. The first three years the bush may be of insignificant size, but in the future the growth will be obvious, so you should provide support, in the form of a wall, fence, decorative design.
What should be the soil?
The most successful soil for roses Pierre de Ronsard should be fertile, loose breathable. Black soil is perfect for planting, but it will also grow well in loam or supes. If possible, the soil is diluted with peat, organic fertilizers, turf soil, sand, ash. Do not neglect the drainage. It, as a rule, is made of crushed brick or rubble.
It is believed that the best time to plant a climbing rose is spring. When it is already warm outside, about the second half of May.
However, before the procedure should prepare the site:
- they dig up the ground deep,
- eliminate weeds,
- level the acidity of the soil by adding charcoal,
- digging a hole 40x40 and a depth of half a meter
- ½ buckets of manure or humus fall to the bottom,
- moistened from above with water
- the roots of the seedlings are cut to 15-20 cm, which contributes to abundant growth and flowering,
- they set the rose in the center of the pit and stamp it with earth,
- plentifully watered.
Climbing rose bushes are placed at a distance so that they do not interfere with each other.
Pierre de Ronsard climbing rose is a frost-resistant variety. The plant is able to withstand a minimum temperature of -23 ° C. Maximum parameters in summer + 35-40 ° С. The optimum temperature range is considered to be + 20-25 ° C.
After planting, the plant needs to be moistened. It should be watered in the morning, and water should be poured at the root to prevent it from falling on the leaves. In the hot summer, the flower should be watered regularly, about 1 time per week. Water must be taken clean, separated at room temperature. It is not necessary to water in the autumn.
This procedure is simply necessary for climbing roses. This forms a whip, adjusts the desired direction, increases the number of flowers.
- By the end of April, all broken, deformed, inanimate shoots are removed. Sections are treated with garden barb.
- During the procedure, cut four-year scourge, as the inflorescences appear only on the new and last year's branches.
- Shoots that have faded off in season are pruned to the nearest bud.
How to tie a plant?
Long thin lashes of roses should certainly be tied to a supportwhich is pre-installed. Supports can be in the form of: arches, grids, conical design. The use of metal wire is not recommended as a string, as it damages the shoots. It is better to take a nylon cord or other soft material that will not harm the integrity of the plant.
It happens when the planting site did not have to taste the plant, which is not a negative impact of flowering. As a result, need a transplant roses.
- First, remove the flower from the ground and carefully examine the root system.
- Damaged or rotten roots pruned shears.
- When planting, the root system should be well positioned so that it does not stick out of the pit.
Do a transplant advised in early falluntil the roots began to adapt to the cold, or in early spring before the appearance of buds.
Preparing for the winter
At the first signs of a cold snap, they carry out organizational work to prepare for the winter. However, the difficulty lies in the fact that the shoots of roses of this variety are quite tough, they are difficult to bend down to the ground without damaging the plant. For this reason, a vertical shelter is used, and lutraxyl is used as a material, having previously wrapped shoots with spruce branches.
If the bush is quite voluminous, then build a kind of house of insulation. Before the onset of extreme cold, leave uncovered areas for ventilation. When the temperature drops to the limit of -10 ° C, the rose is finally wrapped.
Step by step instructions: how to multiply?
Pierre de Ronsard bred cuttings or layering:
- Cuttings. To this end, cuttings are harvested from the middle of a faded whip, 15 cm long. Such blanks are immersed in a wet substrate and covered with a film on top. The resulting plant can be planted in open ground only for the third season.
- Layering. The lower lash is bent down, fixed with staples and added dropwise with earth. A year later, the process is separated from the parent plant.
Diseases and pests
Pierre de Ronsard clinging rose variety has been made resistant to all major types of fungal diseases. therefore powdery mildew and spotting he is not afraid. But as a preventive measure in spring, the plant is treated with blue vitriol. The flower is also not afraid of harmful insects. But the most common pests that can cause harm - aphid. They fight it with the help of insecticide preparations or folk remedies: a decoction of onion peel, milk with iodine.
To summarize, this sort of climbing plant is distinguished by sagging branches under the weight of inflorescences, which adds charm, but at the same time, support and garter of roses are required. Among the advantages: remontant, cold endurance, resistance to fungal diseases.

The size of the bush is medium, the shoots are slow in growth, so the pink bushes of Pierre de Ronsard are of the most decorative effect after the age of three. Leaves hard. Leaf plates are large, bright green. Thorns are present on shoots in small quantities. Flowers appear in waves, the first flowering is the most abundant. Repeated flowering more modest, the flowers reveal smaller.

Also in cold winters, the bushes of rose Pierre de Ronsard can freeze and even die if the winter is very severe. We will try to learn about some features of growing this variety of roses.
How to plant a climbing rose varieties Pierre de Ronsard
When choosing a place for climbing roses, you must first of all consider its purpose in the garden. First of all, despite the rather slow growth in the first three years after planting, the height of the bushes can reach 3 m without trimming. Therefore, the bush will need a vertical support, it can be a garden gazebo and any other wall, arch and even a fence.
