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 Arch is covered with tender purple-pink blooms.
The gentle purple-pink ‘Débutante’ will develop numerous cascading clusters of small ruffled rosette-shaped blooms surrounded by a wealth of small dark green leaves. This rose, which can reach a height of 4 metres, is especially appealing when trained on a rose obelisk or trellis.
