edited December 2019 in Plants of the longest flowering rambler roses I know of... when established... I've had a few hard frosts...-3 a couple of times recently...  I keep it to about 8 foot high by 10-12 feet width but it's capable of much more...

[Turbat, France 1916... named for a grand daughter of the breeder]

Berberis 'Bagatelle'... colourful rounded shrubs...

autumn colours on Geranium x cantabrigiense cultivar..

...can't help but admire their work...

    Having admired my daughter's Ghislaine de Féligonde I planted one this spring. She's still a baby but I have high hopes. I planted Penelope nearby.

  • But how do you pronounce it?

    ...good question.....'Jheez lenn'... according to Google translate... although it's not how I say it, which is more like 'Ghee lane'...

     :) I think Google is more like it. My daughter and I live in France.

    I was thinking Jís Len - it’s the Feligonde bit I’m unsure of - I pause, before saying it unconvincingly.

    Lovely rose, however it’s pronounced. I do like your Berberis Bagatelle, Marlorena, looking forward to receiving mine to add to the rest of my growing Berberis collection...

    My roses finally stopped flowering after a few heavy frosts, so I defoliated them and did a bit of light trimming. Probably too early, some are growing new leaves again and even a few buds. Iceberg is about to flower again.

  • Oh, so I have been saying it correctly all along!
