Rosa 'Anemone' (Climbing Rose) - This pink evergreen hybrid climber has been previously known as Rosa anemonoides or R. sinica 'Anemone' but now it is considered a Rosa laevigata hybrid. Bred by J. Schmidt of Erfurt, Germany in 1895, it is presumed to be a cross between the white, single flowered Cherokee Rose, R. laevigata and a Tea Rose. For this reason it is often called 'Pink Cherokee', and although it has the vigor of R. laevigata, it is much more open and its foliage more dainty. Grows to 12 feet tall and wide. In the early spring this plant has a profusion of lightly fragrant large clear pink single flowers erupting from the glossy foliage and is often followed by a rebloom in the early summer. The flower petals are lightly veined with a deeper pink, are paler on the reverse side and surround a crown of golden stamens. The bloom period extends through mid-spring and is often followed by a rebloom in the early summer. A large specimen of Rosa 'Anenome' can be seen at our nursery on our back fence behind the main greenhouse. Zones 5-9. We received this plant from Bernard Aquistapace and grew this plant from 1998 until 2009. A great old rose but we finally have moved on and no longer sell it. 

This information about Rosa 'Anemone' displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
