How is the rose François Juranville

detail of petals

The François Juranville rose comes from France. The first cultivar that was generated was in 1906. It was the rosalista René Barbier who got it. This already tells you that we are talking about a hybrid rose, from the Rosa wichuraiana Crép. syn. And the rose Madame Laurette Messimy. They are names that perhaps you have never known, but if you search for them on Google you will see what they are like.

The result of this cross gave the François Juranville rose, a climbing plant. In fact, It is capable of reaching between 4,5 and 7,5 meters in height, with more than 3 meters in width.

As for its color, we start with the leaves and the stem. This is dark green. It is one of those that develops many leaves, so it will be very leafy. That's why, many use it to place it on fences or the like and to serve as upholstery between medians to hide spaces. And if you worry about the thorns, it is one of the rose bushes that does not usually develop many. It does not mean that it does not have, but there will not be as many as with other types of rose bushes.

But maybe the most beautiful of the rose François Juranville are its flowers. These can range from salmon pink to peachy, all embellished with a few hints of yellow. Its size is not small at all, as it can reach 3,5″. They are very fragrant, being able to find a fragrance that simulates apples. They are composed of between 17 and 25 petals and always bloom in small groups.

Yes, you should keep in mind that this plant only blooms once a yearWell in spring, well in summer.

François Juranville rose care


Since you are more familiar with the François Juranville rose, How about we review the most important care that you must control with this cultivar?? Know that, if you take good care of it, it could surprise you by attracting butterflies, which will make your garden fill with color due to their wings in combination with the flowers it gives.

Location and temperature

We can tell you about the François Juranville rose that it is one of the most vigorous and resistant rose bushes. But that doesn't mean it's an all-rounder.

This cultivar does much better outdoors than indoors, although it may be in one place or another. The only thing you must guarantee is that it has enough hours of light, even direct sunlight. That implies that you must give it at least 8 hours of sun. And inside the house? As much as you can. Although it will adapt to semi-shade, you will have a problem and that is that it blooms much less (or sometimes it doesn't even).

Regarding the temperature, the truth is that it usually does not have a problem with the heat, but not with the cold. In fact, if where you live there is usually frost, it is convenient that you protect it with some protective mesh or similar so that it does not deteriorate.


Like any other rose bush, the most suitable thing is that it have a soil with good drainage and, at the same time, that it conserves humidity. That's why, we recommend that you use a mixture of universal substrate with earthworm humus and perlite. That will help meet the needs you have.

Keep in mind that it will be different if you have it in a pot or in the garden. Because if it's in a garden you have to apply some extra fertilizer because it will quickly consume the nutrients from the soil.



Irrigation should be somewhat moderate. What you should keep in mind is that you have to keep the soil moist all the time. So, if you live in a fairly hot summer, the best thing you can do is try to water more often (sometimes you have to do it every day if very high temperatures are reached).

By cons, in winter you may not have to water it as much, being able to spend a week, or more, depending on the temperatures that are reached.

In both cases we recommend that you water with rainwater. In case you don't have it, you can fill a carafe with water and let it rest for 24-48 hours. When you go to water, add a few drops of white wine vinegar so that it is suitable for watering the rose bushes.


Since it is a fairly prolific rose bush, it is important to fertilize it during the spring and summer to help it with nutrients. Bet on a liquid subscriber, but you can also use manure or compost for it.


Pruning is an important part of your care if you want it to get ahead. For a start, you must do a pruning in spring to eliminate all the branches that are old or dead. It also removes those that intersect. With the rest, it is convenient that you cut them by a third or even more.

As new shoots appear, you should ensure that they are healthy and do not interfere with each other.


Once the rose bush is established you may want to propagate it. And the truth is that it is not too difficult to achieve it. Of course, you must know how to do it and for this there are two ways:

In autumn, taking cuttings from the wood (from the stems) and planting them. You will have to protect them from the cold, but also give them the conditions they need to get ahead.

In summer, through the splinters that sprout. There are those who do well with this method but it is not usually easy to achieve.

Y up to here we can tell you about the François Juranville rose. If you have the opportunity, and you like to have "rare" roses, this may be one of them.
