Rambling roses are perfect for growing over arches and trellis’, due to their flexible branches which are easy to bend and tie in.
Many rambling roses only flower once during early to mid-summer, but usually flower prolifically, producing clusters of flowers. The blooms of ramblers tend to be smaller than those of climbing roses, but are produced in such abundance that once established the result is often breath-taking. Many ramblers also go on to produce attractive hips in the autumn. Scrambling roses, or scramblers, are similar to rambling roses, but generally even more vigorous making them great for growing up into trees or planted to cover large areas. It is worth noting that ramblers and scramblers will take two to three years to establish and some of the more vigorous varieties could take up to three years to flower.
