English Rambling Roses

The great advantage of English Rose Ramblers is that they repeat flower throughout the summer months, unlike most ramblers that only flower once in early summer. Not too tall with slender, flexible growth, they are easy to maintain and train. After just a couple of seasons, swathes of pretty little blooms will beautifully clothe a structure or wall creating a spectacular effect.
