English Roses as Climbers
Glorious fragrant blooms, superb repeat-flowering, easy to manage - English Roses make excellent climbers

English Roses are seldom more beautiful than when they are grown as climbing roses and the varieties featured over the next few pages are amongst the very best. They repeat flower with exceptional continuity and, during the flowering season, are clothed in blooms from the top all the way down to the base of the plant. Vigorous, without being too tall, they are perfect for pillars, pergolas, arches and obelisks. Their flexible canes also make them easy to fan out on walls, trellises and fences.
