English Climbing Roses

English Climbing Roses are perfect for softening structures or creating height in your garden. Unlike many climbing roses, they repeat flower with exceptional continuity and are clothed in blooms from the ground upwards. As a group, they don’t grow too tall, making them easy to manage and the perfect height for appreciating the beauty and fragrance of their blooms.
