The ‘Lady of the Lake’ is the name of the ruler of Avalon in the Arthurian legend. She also plays a pivotal role in Sir Walter Scott’s famous poem of the same name.

English Rambling Roses

The great advantage of English Rose Ramblers is that they repeat flower throughout the summer months, unlike most ramblers that only flower once in early summer. Not too tall with slender, flexible growth, they are easy to maintain and train. After just a couple of seasons, swathes of pretty little blooms will beautifully clothe a structure or wall creating a spectacular effect.
