Comments Climbing pinkie is vigorous. It makes long canes and it makes lots of branches, so it is a rose useful if one is trying to completely obscure a large surface. The plant's enthusiasm in making foliage extends to making flowers. Few roses will match it for flower production when it is at its best. It has made the very short list of TAMUs Earthkind roses which resist fungal disease without spraying and grow vigorously without artificial fertilization of the soil. To make things even better, its flowers are fragrant.
