Hi I live in Mississauga and would love to purchase a CL Pianta climbing rose but I can’t seem to find them. Any suggestions where I could buy them or something close to it. Thank you
Thank-you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners with your question.
We do not make recommendations on where to purchase plants. We suggest you go to the Landscape Ontario website and search for “retail garden centres” to find places in your own area: https://landscapeontario.com/search
If you find that these nurseries do not stock this particular climbing rose, you can certainly find an alternative cultivar. The difficulty you will have is in finding a climber with similar colouring to the ‘Pinata’. Its vibrant oranges and yellows are not common in the climbers readily available in southern Ontario. Two yellow climbers you may wish to look into are: ‘Alchemist’ (a yellow-orange double) and ‘Golden showers’ (a dark yellow-gold). Some of the most frequently recommended climbers are described in the souces below (the first is another response to a climbing rose question by Toronto Master Gardeners):
Good luck sourcing your climbing rose!
