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 Garden Elements ‘Giverny’ Umbrella Trellises provide support for Rosa helenae ‘Goldfinch’ seedlings. These are sturdy roses that bloom abundantly. Their small golden yellow buds open up with loose yellowish petals which later become almost white.
