Wedding Day rose - not so pollinator friendly?
I put in a Wedding Day rambling rose on my pergola last year and it has been flowering beautifully for the whole of June. I chose it largely because I thought its simple open flowers and fragrance would make it a good pollinator plant (which so many roses are not). In fact, the Gardeners World description includes this statement : "The single, open nature of its flowers make it a good plant for bees." Some other plant websites also make that claim. From my experience, I beg to differ and am extremely disappointed I have never seen a bee, hoverfly or butterfly on it yet, and every insect that has come close to investigate it has flown straight off the the nearest foxglove or other flower. Anybody else had this, or a different experience?
