Suggestions for orange climbing rose.

And I mean a true orange like the fruit, not russet, or salmon or apricot, or peach or amber or ??? I have Joseph's coat which has a shade of orange to it along with yellow and pink. It can be a new or old rose but am looking for a climber. Pictures would be great.
Thanks.

This is "Rusty's Angel's Camp Orange," a climber thought perhaps to be 'Royal Sunset,' which was collected by Rusty Rolleri, in Angel's Camp, CA. I think the Historic Garden volunteers may propagate this one for the April Open Garden and Sale.

I like this a lot. If you're interested, I can post an image of the plant, in full bloom in the Sacramento City Cemetery.

I had one for a while called 'Paprika' that was fairly orange, though on the reddish orange side. It was kind of meh, I got rid of it.

'Royal Sunset' is gorgeous, and fragrant, but it's fairly apricot around here.

Pinata has some orange in it, but it is a blend like J'sC

I checked Weeks and Stars websites, star listed "Orange Crush"

Looks more red than orange, but might be one to check out

Heirloom Roses has an orange sport of Altissimo named 'Christine'. I think they have at least one and maybe two orangish climbers from John Clements' breeding. Portlandia is one. Ginger Syllabub is a fairly new orangish climber from Harkness. Heirloom and Vintage both carry it.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I will have to look them up and read about them.

There's a Warner, climbing miniature rose from the UK that I don't know is available in the US called Warm Welcome. I love it because of its colour and fragrance.

I also agree with Royal Sunset and Westerland.

Jeri, if you're still following this thread, I would love to see the entire plant in bloom.

Here you go, Florida. :-)

This (like the image of the bloom) was photographed in April, in the Historic Rose Garden of the Sacramento City Cemetery.

We grow Oranges n' Lemons and it's 9' tall in it's first year. It's a very bright orange striped rose.

Thanks again for the suggestions. I am writing them down. I have Oranges n' Lemons, which I love, in the smaller bush form. I don't know if it is suppose to be that way, or the fact I keep it pruned. It does like to send out very tall shoots.

Jeri - Is "Rusty's Angel's Camp Orange," an OGR? Pretty rose though I wish it was a little darker orange. Where is the April Open Garden and Sale taking place, Sacramento?

"Rusty's Angel's Camp Orange" is a modern rose. A suggested identity is 'Royal Sunset.'

The April event is in the Historic Rose Garden, within the Historic Old City Cemetery, 1000 Broadway, Sacramento, CA. The Open Garden always takes place on a mid-April Saturday. (The 2013 date has not yet been announced.)

I believe the photos posted here were taken at Open Garden, April, 2011.
