Any Modern Country Garden has to have climbing roses. It's a given, right? So, with that decision made, I'm often asked, which is the best climbing rose to choose?
Unless you have acres to devote to any rose that takes your fancy, a good idea is to only choose roses that perform beautifully. Look for profuse flowering over a long period, healthy, strong growth, and, of course, delicious perfume.
The climbing rose New Dawn (AGM) ticks all those boxes and more! It is reliable and healthy, with glossy, dark green foliage that lasts well into winter. New Dawn has fragrant blush pink flowers which appear freely from early summer to late autumn. Truly who could ask for more for their Modern Country Garden?
Last year, we planted the rose 'New Dawn' to grow up the front of our house. It's still in its baby-stages but I can't wait for it to reveal its full glory, as in the images below. Aren't they beautiful?
Modern Country Garden perfection!
Having given all that sensible advice, I have to admit, somewhat sheepishly, that I find it hard not to resist the call to squeeze in a few more roses in our own Modern Country garden.
Now, please 'fess up, I'm dying to know...
which is your favourite climbing rose?
