Rose climbing an oak tree?
We've got a HUGE old oak tree in our front yard, with massive roots. The area around it is in full sun, almost the whole day, so I think it would be a great rose spot. This is because the lowest branches have been removed and the canopy thinned out. In fact, there are no branches until at least 20 feet up.
Would it be possible to train a rose up it? Maybe a vigorous climber like New Dawn? I am a total newbie to roses, but I would like a vigorous climber and preferably a repeat bloomer.
Could I plant a foot or two away and train the rose to the tree?
Do you need to have lower-down branches to make this work?
Any thoughts/advice welcome! TIA.
