Rosa 'John Davis' is a very hardy, trailing rose, perfect for a not too tall climber (grows 6 – 8 ft). Beautiful on a trellis or pergola, it has the look of an old fashioned rose more often seen in England. To say John Davis is a prolific bloomer is an understatement. Thousands of spicily scented semi-double 3” blooms in a glorious pink blanket the vine. Hardy to zone 3a, it requires no protection other than snow. Further north protection is necessary.

Rosa 'John Davis' was introduced in 1986. It is part of the Explorer series, a set of rose varieties specially developed at Canadian Research Stations in Ontario and Quebec to survive Canadian winters. They can be hardy down to -35 °C with only snow as protection; and don’t mind hot summers. Explorer series roses require minimal care and pruning. They are disease resistant, flower repeatedly throughout the summer, and come in a variety of colours and sizes.
