Rambling Roses

Ramblers produce masses of small to medium-sized flowers held in large bunches, making them ideal for creating dramatic effect. With their height and flexibility they have a multitude of different uses: covering buildings and various garden structures, as well as rambling through trees. Although the majority of varieties are not repeat-flowering, many produce beautiful hips bringing autumnal colour and food for wildlife. They can also be used as support for other climbers, such as Clematis viticella.
