Climbing Roses

Climbing roses have large flowers, held singly or in small groups. They are a wonderful way of creating height in the garden and, as most varieties are repeat-flowering, they are ideal for clothing structures with abundant blooms throughout the summer months. Perhaps one of the best uses for a climbing rose is to lift the front of a house by either hiding an ugly façade or simply making a beautiful house more beautiful.
