Z5 Climbing Mini - Rainbows End or...Suggestions?
I'm considering a climbing mini; here are my "must haves".
Abundant & repeat bloom.
Height and cane hardiness - to grow over the top of medium arbor.
Moderate shade tolerance. It will get a bit of late afternoon shade, but also the arbor itself blocks some morning sun, at least at the base.
I'm in wet, humid climate; so BS is a problem, but I do spray regularly.
Soil is rich composted loam; sorry I don't know my ph.
Jeanne La joie is growing on the other side of the arbor, and it will sit next to a wall with a climbing Graham Thomas.
I'd like a color that will stand out against its yellow and pink neighbors. Rainbows End comes to mind but maybe something in a coral pink?
I like the idea of a mini because it will go well with the Jeanne Lajoie, but if I can't find a mini that fits all of those criteria, I'll scrap the mini idea and look for better suited climbers.
