Linus: this is from the Proven Winners website: The Rise Up™ series of roses are the first-ever climbing roses from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs. We call them “mini climbers,” as they keep a neat, dense habit and can be grown as a climber or a shrub rose, depending on how the gardener prunes or trains them. Coming to us from the rose breeding genius of Chris Warner in the UK, these vigorous, healthy, reblooming roses create a range of new applications for Proven Winners roses. Rise Up Lilac Days™ rose is one of the most unique roses to hit the North American market in years. Between its unique lilac-blue color and powerful, heady fragrance, it will practically fly off the bench at the garden center! Its versatile habit allows it to be grown as a climber or a shrub, making it the ideal addition to landscapes and gardens
