Impressions of the Rose Garden at Peter Beales Roses in Attleborough, East Anglia

Wichurana Ramblers will flourish without a great deal of attention if trained on a stable rose arch or obelisk, or on a wall trellis. All that needs to be done is to remove old wood after the roses have blossomed. In the rose garden of Peter Beales Roses Ltd in Attleborough, the ‘Portefino’ Roman Rose […]

You can expect magnificent blooms when the Classic Garden Elements ‘Jean Vibert’ metal trellis supports the famous ‘Super Excelsa” climbing rose.

In this picture by Friedrich Strauss, a Classic Garden Elements’ ‘Jean Vibert’ extendable trellis provides reliable support for an array of heavy blooms. This sturdy and elegant metal support allows the enchanting ‘Super Excelsa’ climbing rose to grow even higher.

Stablility and unpretentious elegance are the hallmarks of the Classic Garden Elements’ free-standing “Beekman” trellis.

Cleverly placed close to a house entrance, the Classic Garden Elements narrow “Beekman” trellis is the perfect eye-catcher. The metal trellis’s invisible anchor guarantees stability in every weather.

Even in Sweden, with its relatively cool temperatures, roses bloom in abundance on a Classic Garden Elements ‘Orangery’ Wall Trellis.

The elegant orangeries of the 18th century provided the inspiration for the unusual design of this metal wall trellis by Classic Garden Elements. Covered with red climbing roses, this stable trellis exudes an air of sophistication against the backdrop of a warm yellow façade. We are grateful to Vansta Trädgård of Stockholm for sending us […]

There is music in the air as an ‘Amadeus’ climbing rose scales a Classic Garden Elements Victorian Rose Arch.

Like the music of Mozart, Austria’s most famous composer, the repeat-blooming ‘Amadeus’ climbing rose (Kordes, 2003) exerts its own special fascination. Blood-red, half-filled blooms growing in umbels impress the viewer even from a distance. In Sparrieshoop, in the gardens of the Kordes rose-breeder family, this ‘Amadeus’, one of the world’s most frequently photographed roses, has […]

In olden times, when wishing still did some good … it was Sleeping Beauty herself, who realised that climbing roses have a preference for east- or west-facing facades.

If your dream is a rose-covered castle to rival Sleeping Beauty’s, then plant your climbing roses on the east- or west-facing facade of your ‘castle’. And fair wishes may come true!

The once-flowering Rosa sempervirens-Hybrid ‘Adélaide d’Orléans’ (Jacques, 1826) growing on a trellis arch at the Rosarium Glücksburg.

In a very short time, the once-flowering Rosa sempervirens-Hybrid ‘Adélaide d’Orléans’ (Jacques, 1826) will wrap every rose arch in its soft embrace. In this image taken by Leif to Baben at the Rosarium Glücksburg, it has come into bloom on a Classic Garden Elements ‘Bagatelle’ rose arch. Famous English rosarian David Austin writes about ‘Adélaide […]

‘Golden Gate’ roses by Kordes in full splendour on a Classic Garden Elements ‘Rose Obelisk II’.

The Classic Garden Elements three-winged ‘Rose Obelisk II’ supports the bushy, upward- growing ‘Golden Gate’ rose by Kordes (2005) in the show gardens of the Rosen-Union in Steinfurth, Germany. Perhaps a good way to let this rose live up to its name would be train it on a metal rose arch, where its golden-yellow, half-full […]

Roses and clematis growing on Classic Garden Elements trellises.

Behind a luxuriant hydrangea bush, the red ‘Florentina’ climbing rose (Kordes) scales a Classic Garden Elements ‘Beekman’ trellis. On the façade the narrow metal wall trellis helps ‘Venosa Violacea’ clematis to reach soaring heights.

………a rose is a rose is a rose…….Roses, Roses, Roses!

Can there be any more stunning way to display the Queen of flowers than on a trellis arch? Densely woven blooms and foliage take centre stage, while their seductive fragrance erupts into the surrounding air. We are indebted to Roland Marquart from the Rosarium in Baden-Baden for this image.

Garden arbour with roses in one of the world’s most beautiful rosariums: the Roseraie du Val de Marne’ in L’Haÿ-les-Roses south of Paris. An absolute must for every rose lover.

Every year in June, the rose arches in L’Haÿ-les-Roses south of Paris are awash with blooms. Lined up in a row, the arches direct our gaze towards the stone vase at the end of the long pathway. We are grateful to Les Amis de la Roseraie du Val-de-Marne à l’Haÿ-les-roses for providing this image.

A sturdy metal rose arch bathing in a sea of ‘Etoile Violette’ clematis blooms.

Clematis viticella ‘Etoile Violette’ is a robust and hardy plant that produces numerous blooms. The intensely blue-violet velvety blossoms appear from June to September. The creamy yellow and green stamens in the foreground produce a harmonious contrast. As with all varieties of clematis, there are some golden rules to follow. Damp and cold feet with […]

A ‘Raubritter’ climbing rose with a profusion of pink blossoms in the stately Spa Gardens of Baden Baden.

‘Raubritter’ (Kordes, 1936) is a frost-resistant rose with rounded, cupped, silvery-pink flowers. For about three weeks in early summer it produces rich clusters of blooms with a truly enchanting fragrance. A real eye-catcher! After blooming, however, it tends to decline and there is risk of flower balling and mildew. A ‘Raubritter” easily reaches a height […]

In the Blue Garden at the Arboretum Ellerhoop, the eye-catcher is a Classic Garden Elements ‘Wallingford’ Gazebo.

The Blue Garden in the Arboretum Ellerhoop with a ‘Wallingford’ metal gazebo and two round garden obelisks, both by Classic Garden Elements, in a photo by Brigitte Bergschneider.

The ‘Giverny’ Umbrella Trellis is an exceptional metal plant support frame. The design is inspired by a frame from Claude Monte’s garden in Giverny, after which it is also named.

After only three years, the luxuriant ‘Rosarium Uetersen’ standard weeping rose (Kordes) has covered a Classic Garden Elements ‘Giverny’ umbrella trellis. As well as stabilising the rose trunk, the sturdy metal frame also allows you to train the generally upward-growing canes downwards, thus promoting numerous budded side shoots.

Classic Garden Elements’ ‘St Albans’ Garden Arbour is the perfect rendezvous for an intimate tête-à-tête. Fragrance and colour for people in love.

Wisteria floribunda – introduced into Europe from Japan around 1830 – needs a lot of light and thrives in warm conditions. Training its canes horizontally will help to ensure a more impressive profusion of blooms. Growing on this sturdy metal garden arbour, it can be kept under control as it spreads. It should be cut […]

A leisurely moment in shades of pink surrounded by the scarlet red petals of a ‘Santana’ climbing rose on a Classic Garden Elements ‘Kiftsgate’ Rose Arch

This garden rose arch defines the sitting area, creating a sense of intimacy in an inviting setting. The ‘Santana’ climbing rose with a Classic Garden Elements ‘Kiftsgate’ Victorian Rose Arch in a photo by Friedrich Strauss.

The weak-growing ‘Rosilia’ Rambler Rose scales a Classic Garden Elements ‘Kiftsgate’ Victorian Rose Arch.

Clusters of tender blooms seem to float above the garden path. Can a rose arch be more perfect than this? Beneath the luxuriant array of blooms, the sturdy metal garden arch supporting them is hardly visible now. This works well with repeat-blooming, less strong-growing roses. In this photo, the ‘Rosilia’ rambler scales a Classic Garden […]

Climbing Roses in a Flourish of Colour Trained on A Classic French Treillage Trellis

At the Rose Garden at l’Haÿ-les-Roses, near Paris, the art of cutting, training and tying the metre-long canes of numerous ‘Alexandre Girault’ rambler roses (Barbier,1908) has a long tradition. We are grateful to the Friends of the Rosarium (Les Amis de la Roseraie du Val-de-Marne à l’Haÿ-les-roses) for supplying the photograph.

Richly Coloured Rose-Lined Path with a ‘Charleston’ Garden Obelisk

A pathway lined with a colourful array of pillar-supported climbing roses (from right to left): ‘Laguna’, ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Eden Rose 85’, and ‘Constance Spry’. In this garden courtyard in the Taunus area near Frankfurt, the roses bloom simultaneously from the base of the obelisk to the top. The secret is to train them to grow […]

House Wall with Sturdy Metal Rose-Covered Lean-to Arch

There is no reason why a narrow path around a house should be dull. With the right climbing plants, even the supposedly unfavourable north side can be brought to life. In this picture, Clematis viticella ‘Venosa Violacea has grown to form a soaring tower of blooms. The Classic Garden Elements ‘Bagatelle’ half-arch trellis provides the […]

‘Laguna’ Rose on a Garden Arbour with a Teak Bench for that special Tête-à-Tête

A lovers’ teak bench in a large Classic Garden Elements Victorian Rose Arbour which is covered with ‘Laguna’ climbing roses. The photo was taken at the Arboretum Ellerhoop near Hamburg. Three years after planting, the roses now cover the greater part of this sturdy metal frame.

Trompe-l’oeil Wall Trellis with Mandevilla in bloom

A small trompe-l’oeil wall trellis by Classic Garden Elements covered with blooming mandevilla, also known as dipladenia. A sun-loving climber, it stands out with its stunning array of flowers. The species, which originally comes from South America, is available in over 100 varieties. As a potted plant on a balcony or patio, it will immediately […]

Rosa helenae ‘Goldfinch’ on Umbrella Trellises lining the a Pathway at Schafhof Estate near Frankfurt

Before you plant weeping standard roses, it is worth thinking about how best to support them. Although metal frames may be in a higher price range, they are by far the most effective way of preventing thicker canes from breaking during the next summer storm. The picture shows a private garden near Frankfurt where Classic […]

Classic Free-Standing Metal Trellis with ‘Palais Royal’ and ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ Climbing Roses

Two Classic Garden Elements made-to-measure ‘Beekman’ Free-Standing Trellises completely covered by climbing roses by Meiland: the stunning ‘Palais Royal’ (left) and ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ or ‘Eden Rose’ (right). Both varieties thrive at lofty heights in the garden of rose book author Kasimir Magyar at Rüschlikon on Lake Zurich. Simply splendid.
