Climber, Rambler, Shrub and Pillar Roses
This climber produces clear, almost unfading fragrant yellow blooms of an impeccable Hybrid Tea shape virtually non-stop throughout the growing season.
The young plant is soon covered with these refreshing yellow blooms and almost as soon as the petals drop, a new crop of even stronger stems is waiting to burst into colour. Obviously such a vigorous rose is healthy and covered with good green foliage. It requires the minimum of garden maintenance.
This climber has a tendency to arch its major branches, which gives this rose an informal growth pattern when it is planted on its own. It cascades when allowed to hang over walls and from pergolas.Plant Height: Above 2m HeightColours: Lemon , Light yellow , Yellow Uses: Cut-flowers, Pillar, Trellis
Large trusses of single, small flowers. Shades of pink. Vigorous, prolific growth. If unsupported, the long basal stems will give a willowy effect by virtue of the weight of the flower trusses. Flowers repeatedly.
Medium sized, semi-double flowers of a distinct, clear pink appear throughout summer on this very vigorous, relaxed and easy growing climber. If supported in its first year after planting, it will grow to hang over wall, pergolas and arches. Only light pruning is required. The leaves are healthy and glossy.
Medium sized, elegant blooms. Cameo pink. Vigorous growth which may be trained along a fence. Forms a 2 m high, willowy shrub. One of the most floriferous and repeat-flowering climbers.
I have been eying this climber for a while during my rose travels around the world. It is not just the unique ‘butterscotch’ colour of the blooms, but the combination of size & shape, and also its performance as a climber that will make this a favourite in gardens in South Africa.
It easily reaches 3m height in a season & flowers at the end of each new shoot as well as on many side stems for most of the year. Such lengthy growth needs to be tied regularly to a supporting structure of poles, high fences, walls, pergolas or arches. The shapely blooms have a distinct slight fragrance.

Large, shapely buds open into full, double blooms; buttercup yellow with pink on the petal margins – much like ‘Peace’; vigorous, upright growth; flowers in large, loose clusters at the end of the long, strong canes, glossy, healthy foliage; blooms repeatedly.Plant Height: Above 2m HeightColours: Light yellow , Pale pink , Yellow Uses: Arch
Miniature-sized “button-hole” buds of a perfect regal shape. Soft pink. If left undisturbed it may grow into a large shrub with very thick, main branches. May be pruned annually to retain a desired shape and size. Blooms are borne continuously on side-stems with long, delphinium spikes. Useful as a hedge rose.
With its tendency to form garlands, it takes little effort to train, tie up or spread out its long, very fast growing, supple canes. Once achieved, this amazing climber keeps on growing & producing clusters of medium sized, fully petalled blooms of a cherry-red colour. The glossy green foliage is tough & impervious to disease.
Semi-double blooms carried in clusters throughout the season; shell-pink with golden stamens; vigorous, healthy growth with many flowering side-stems bearing tight clusters of blooms on the end of every shoot; forms a neat shrub with a willowy effect which does not need support; may be trained on poles and over a pergola.
Large, single blooms, crimson with a golden eye. Profuse and continuous flowerer and carries its masses of blooms all along the strong basal branches and on many side-shoots. May be cut back during the season to keep in shape and to encourage a new flush of blooms. May be free-standing or trained over a pergola or fence.
