Classic climbing roses
Repeat flowering climbing roses often produce shoots of 200 to 300 cm, some even longer, and are ideal for covering pergolas, gazebos, columns and walls. Most have Polyantha Hybrid or Floribunda roses in their ancestry and thus produce mostly clusters of flowers. Solitary flowers are usually large and full, reminiscent of Hybrid Tea roses. Plant spacing should be between 100 and 200 cm. Flower quantities are increased if, following spring pruning, the main shoots are trained horizontally or inclined.
New in our programme are two modern, repeat flowering rambler roses. Perennial Blue and Perennial Blush. They repeat well following their main flush in June, especially if deadheaded and fed immediately after flowering. Repeat flowering ramblers produce very large clusters of small, fragrant flowers. Spacing should be 100-200 cm. Planting in groups of three around pyramid columns provides a very attractive display.
All climbing roses perform best in deep, well prepared soil and regular watering during the first year and in dry spells.
