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 in a spiral. Lavender, used here as ground cover, shimmers with blue fragrance and ensures that ants and lice keep their distance.
