Planting & Growing
Captain Samuel Holland Rose will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. As a climbing rose, it can be leggy near the base and may be concealed by underplanting with lower-growing facer plants.

It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This woody vine should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
