Fast-growing climbing roses

Updated March 23, 2017

Climbing roses are popular flowers that can grow in many climates and environments. They are usually planted on trellises, fences, columns, walls and trees. These types of roses provide fragrance and colours to yards and patios, which makes them a favourite with gardeners. Many people want to plant fast-growing climbing roses to be able to benefit from their blooms and coverage quickly.

Ramblin' Red

This vigorous climbing rose can grow rapidly to a height of 8 feet. It is very hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9, and is also quite resistant to diseases. The roses are usually double blooms in medium-red colour. They also usually grow in clusters. Its canes are usually easy to train, so this type of climbing rose is ideal to use on trellises.

New Dawn

The New Dawn climbing rose grows in cold areas, except for the most northern parts of the United States. It has vigorous side branching growths and can reach heights up to 15 to 25 feet. The blooms on this climbing rose are usually pink that turn cream-coloured with age. It is usually disease-resistant, but its green foliage can be affected by humidity.


The Blaze climbing rose is popular because of its abundant, bright red flowers. It is grown throughout the U.S. and is able to thrive in both cold and hot climates. It features clustered, double blooms that are usually two to three inches in size. This type of climbing rose is usually resistant to pests and diseases.

Climbing Iceberg

The Climbing Iceberg rose is considered one of the best types of roses because it is rain resistant, has long-lasting blooms and long blooming periods. It comes in several different colours, including white, pink and burgundy. It is a short climber, and is commonly used in small garden spaces and balconies.

Golden Showers

Gardeners who enjoy yellow roses often choose this type of climbing rose. It grows quickly and can reach heights of 12 feet and higher. It typically grows best in USDA Hardiness Zones 6 to 9. The blooms usually start out in bright, yellow colours, and then open in ruffled form and fade to cream colours. They are popular because the overall climbing bush typically has many shades of yellow and cream at one time.
