Rose Name
Rose Name planted in the San Marcos Growers garden.
 
Rosa 'New Dawn' - Light Pink Large Climber (1930)
A repeat flowering sport of the large flowering wichuraiana rambler 'Dr. W.Van Fleet' which was the result of a cross between the hybrid of R. wichuraiana and 'Safrano'(Apricot Tea - 1839) with 'Souvenir du President Carnot' (Pink Hybrid Tea - 1894) and was named for the breeder and introduced by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1910. Rosa 'New Dawn', also known under the name 'Everblooming Dr. W. Van Fleet' was introduced by Dreer Somerset in the U.S. (Somerset Rose Nursery) in 1930. It grows 12-18 feet tall and to 8 ft. wide and has shiny foliage. The fragrant plump pale pink flowers repeat well throughout the summer months. 'New Dawn' is a healthy disease resistance rose that can be used in formal situations as well as more free form. It can tolerate considerable shade but care should be exercised when pruning as it has been observed that 'New Dawn' flowers best on old wood. That 'New Dawn' is one of the best of the climbing roses is undisputed and it has become an important rose to breeders of more modern climbers as well. 'New Dawn' was one of the first roses 'New Dawn' to receive a patent. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993. World Federation of Rose Societies World's Favorite Rose in 1997.

David Austin in his book Shrub Roses and Climbing Roses says of this rose: "'New Dawn' is one of the most disease -free of roses."
