Climbers - using every available space. Roses


By siris


Got the ladder out recently to tie up Climbing rose " White Cockade", growing up the bungalow wall in the front garden.

In the back I have Rosa " Schoolgirl", a peachy colour.

And under the carport a pink climber, grown from a cutting from a relative, either New Dawn or Albertine, with a large-flowered clematis,

There is no picture for Rosa “Mermaid” because she had a verrrry serious prune last year.

Rosa “guinee” has finished and been pruned/dead headed but here are some pics I took earlier.

Not a climber, but Rosa glauca grows strongly upright. I had to stand on the top of the compost heap to take these photos.

Of course, being me I have new plants from cuttings of all of these, except the species rose which self seeds from the hips which form in the autumn.

Thanks Lincslass, a new rose flower is indeed a thing of beauty, before it becomes blowsy.
Thanks oliveoil, the new flowers are more intensely pink, but it fades to a light pink, prior to dropping the petals which are almost white. Scent is slight!
