We sell loads and loads of climbing roses here at Surfing Hydrangea. Happily, antique climbers grown on their own roots are coming back into popularity. Many of these are rambling roses with long flexible canes that lend well to growing on split rail fences, up into trees and over pergolas. These guys are large, but if planted in the right place and allowed to sprawl, they make a spectacular show in June.
We’ve just stocked a group of ‘Paul’s Himalayan Musk’ roses that are sure to please. This variety was introduced around the turn of the century and has been growing strong ever since. This rose is disease resistant and very adaptable – said to bloom heavily with only half day of sun. Although rambling roses only bloom once, they are well worth the wait. ‘Paul’s Himalayan Musk’ covers itself in double pink blossoms that produce an intoxicating scent. A 30′ tall cascading curtain of roses can’t be missed!
