Ramblers are actually vigorous climbers which bloom once a year (some more often), and flower in great profusion. A few are delightfully fragrant. Ramblers are the magnificent, climbing roses seen in the paintings of Victorian England or in photos of some of today’s English gardens growing over archways or climbing up the walls of houses. They have long been a favorite for planting near cottage doorways and garden entrances. Ramblers can be trained to climb into trees or to cover small buildings. They can be used effectively to hide architectural eyesores or blunders. Like a beautiful tapestry thrown over the scene, they soften irregular lines. They are also excellent for accenting entryways, fences, patio coverings, porches, pergolas and gazebos.
One of the most beautiful of all Rambling roses. Fully double, rosette-shaped blooms of lovely, soft, blush-pink, borne in graceful swaying pendulous sprays, with each 1" + bloom (petals 40+) standing out as an individual. There is one growing in a Chestnut tree in the garden, and always gets a lot of attention when it is in bloom. Once blooming. Learn More
