Plant Information

40-50’ tall by 6-9’ wide. Give ‘Rose Sensation’ moist soil and a site that receives part shade, and you’ll be amazed by the vigorous growth of this gorgeous climber. Blooms appear in summer against serrated green leaves and are made up of clusters of sterile florets with single rose-pink bracts. In fall, rich yellow foliage adds to the show. ‘Rose Sensation’ climbs with the aid of aerial roots – perfect for natural, unpainted surfaces such as brick, stone, or wood. Pruning depends on use. In a naturalistic setting, minimal shearing is required. If grown against a north facing wall, you may need to shape it seasonally to prevent unwanted growth. Set plants one foot from the structure you wish them to climb and be patient – schizophragma can take a couple years to put its roots down and get going. Once it does – watch out!

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
