Six on Saturday – Climbing Roses

Rose 'Mermaid'

A few weeks ago I had pleasure in illustrating a number of the Rambling Roses that were doing particularly well this year. This time it is the turn of the climbing roses.

In general the climbing roses tend to be less vigorous and are usually more likely to be repeat flowering than the ramblers.

Choosing just six has been difficult but here is my selection for this week.


One: Compassion

  1. I really like compassion, even tho I usually prefer yellow roses! Also, those foxgloves go so well w/the Constance Spry. I didn’t know the difference between ramblers & climbers. Think I’d go for the climbers, for that repeat flowering!
