For a touch of elegance

Climbing roses bring a nice touch of color and elegance. There are several varieties. They vary depending on the use you make of them and the desired effect: it can cover a wall or a facade, or cover an arcade in a nice way. Climbing roses have long, flexible stems that require support.

Maintenance of the climbing rose is less demanding: sun exposure and pruning every year is enough. There are two types of climbing roses that are not too invasive. 

First of all, the Large-flowered Rose has stems of 1 to 3 flowers of an average diameter of 10 cm. There is also the « grouped-flowered » rose, which is also known as polyanthas roses with larger flowers of an average diameter of 5 cm. If you cut them to make a pretty bouquet of flowers, you will be intoxicated by its bewitching scent. 

These different types of roses are usually tall (between 3 and 7 meters), so it is necessary to prune the branches called scaffolding (the rose’s bones) once a year when flowering is the most important. Whether your rose rises horizontally or vertically, if you prune them properly, the so-called secondary branches will bloom abundantly, if you also prune them every year (ideally in March).

With a pleasing color

English roses, for example, provide roses with both classic and more innovative colours. Whatever the color, this type of rose will bring elegance and beauty. The white is embellished with all the other flowers and shrubs. Pink brings serenity and beauty. Red energizes the garden in a lively way. The yellow brings joy.

Each type of climbing rose gives its touch of color and its delicate scent differs, but all will bring you refinement.
