PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Go to Chamblee's roses http://www.chambleeroses.com/ and pick you out one of their recommended roses. Something like Climbing Pinkie or Old Blush. I wouldn't recommend anything too robust, because Bradford Pears are notoriously weak, and it probably won't be able to support any weight. Any further ice or storm damage will probably cause it to split again, so actually, personally, I'd go ahead and get rid of the tree and just put a climbing rose on a pillar in it's place.
