As you can see, I live in Iowa and our winters can be fierce. If you want to grow a climbing rose for anyone in zone 5 or less, your best bet is the Canadian Explorer Roses. This rose is three years old and as you can see it has covered my split rail fence. They do not need any special protection although I do mulch around mine as a precaution.
Hi,I live in south central Minn.I too have a Canadian climbing rose .I can't think of its name,but it looks just like yours and is taking over the whole fence and is beautiful and gets bigger every year.
