Hi friends!! Want a gorgeous, multicolored, fast growing rose? Then look no further than the Joseph’s coat rose. Here are some pictures of mine which I started last May. I’ve included some tips for how to grow a Joseph’s coat rose as well.
This rose has deep golden centers surrounded by peachy pink and reddish colored outer petals. They then gently fade to a lighter reddish orangey color. They bloom from about June until frost. The leaves are a beautiful, glossy dark green and they stay that way all winter. And they smell heavenly!

Like most roses, Joseph’s coat rose likes sun and water. But I’ve found it’s ok to let the rose go a few days without watering (as long as it’s not a heat wave!) I usually fertilize every 4 to 6 weeks with this Bayer Advanced All in One Rose and Flower Care. (Roses are prone to some diseases.) Mine got a bit of black spot from all the rainfall this winter but it seems to have recovered.
I’m training mine up a trellis. I was afraid this thing would take forever to get to the top. Let me tell you! In one years time, it is past my trellis which was about 6 ft tall and we had to add more trellis. It’s also about 4 feet wide already! This thing really grows! Also, and this is important. When training a rose up a trellis or fence, you want to secure the rose canes horizontally across. The roses grow laterally off the canes. This will give you roses throughout top to bottom. I use these velcro plant ties to secure my canes. They are gentle on the rose and can be reused as your rose grows. I found this picture a few years back which really helped me understand better.
Here was my rose in March of this year.
And here it is now! You can also see the added on trellis at the top. The cedar has not weathered yet so it’s not matching. That really bugs me! And please ignore the bushy looking thing in the middle. That is another rose and it needs a new home but I’m waiting to move it until after the summer.
Guys, I love this thing! If you want an impressive rose wall – get yourself a Joseph’s Coat! It is hardy in zones 6-10.
