Getting the most out of your Camp David rose bush

Planting your Camp David roses

When planting Camp David roses, choose a sunny location with well-drained soil. The ideal planting time for bare-root Camp David roses is in early spring or late fall, when the soil is moist and cool. Start by digging a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just deep enough to accommodate the roots. Add a layer of compost or well-rotted manure to the bottom of the hole, then set the rose plant in the hole, making sure the graft union is above the soil level. 

Fill in the hole with soil, pressing it firmly around the roots to eliminate any air pockets. Water the newly planted rose thoroughly, then add a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Pruning Camp David roses

Start by removing any dead, diseased, or damaged wood, cutting back to healthy wood just above a bud. Next, remove any crossing or rubbing branches to improve air circulation and prevent disease. To encourage bushy growth and more flowers, prune back the remaining canes to about one-third of their original height. If you want to train your Camp David rose as a climbing or pillar rose, select the strongest canes and tie them to a support structure, removing any lateral branches along the way. Throughout the growing season, monitor the rose plant for any new growth that needs to be pruned back, and deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage more blooms.

They are known for their classic rose shape, with one bloom per stem, and a range of colours and fragrances.

What is a Camp David standard rose plant?

A Camp David standard rose plant is a type of rose trained to grow on a tall, single stem with a bushy head of foliage and blooms at the top. It is also known as a tree rose or a standard tree rose. In the case of Camp David, a hybrid tea rose, the standard rose plant would be a variety of the Camp David rose grafted onto a tall, sturdy rootstock. This allows the rose plant to grow into a tree-like form, with the blooms and foliage held high above the ground. Standard roses are often used as focal points in garden beds.
