Can anyone help withrecommendations for small red climber for a small pergolaplease.
Dublin Bay would be lovely for a pergola
I have a couple of red ones chosen for not being too large
Rose ‘Crimson Showers’ (Rambler) –H-Up to 15ft x S 8ft
Trusses of bright crimson, pom-pom like lightly scented flowers against dark shiny foliage. Starts flowering in May and continues into September
Rose ‘Parkdirektor Riggers’ (Modern climber) H 300cm x S 180cm
Large clusters of deep red to scarlet, semi single flowers, continuously produced. Slight fragrance (4) Dark green foliage
may be of help
How small is small? I grow "Laura Ford", a small climber, never more than 5 ft. with me. Starts yellow and flowers fade to a pinky/red.
I love "Summer Wine" - a single rose with red wine coloured petals and beautiful gold stamens. Unusual, but also has wonderful red hips over the winter.
At this time you still have "....the last of the summer wine" as a talking point with friends.
I remember someone recomending Dublin Bay as a red that doesn't fade in the sun
Thanks for all the ideas. I will have to see if I can source them in France
Sorry RegB, I know this is your thread, but may I ask if anyone knows a good pale pink climber for a pergola please. Hope to build one next year. Or would another type of climber be better on pergolas
Hope you don't mind Reg, but was just about to ask when I saw your thread.
No problem SGL
I might go pink myself!!
