Hi all. This is my first posting on GW so please be gentle! Can anyone recommend an orange rambling rose, preferably disease resistant and sweet smelling? Hope this is not asking too much!
I have "warm welcome" in the north of Scotland so its pretty hardy weve had 3 very bad winters. Its a pretty single, striking orange, but not growng much its about 3 to 4ft and its 4years old.
Ive not heard of an orange rambler either
Buff Beauty http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/buff-beauty/, more apricot than shown in this picture, but a wonderfully scented continual flowering grow virtually anywhere disease resistant old-fashioned-looking rambler. You can let it have it's head, or treat it like a climber, and train it up a fence or wall. I've grown in it a big garden and in a tiny shady back yard. Love it
Buff Beauty is gorgeous but not really a rambler, it's a hybrid musk and more of a shrub rose. The best rambler I know is Perrenial Blue, flowers all summer, smells wonderful and is ewtremely tough if you have haed winters.Only snag - it obviously isn't orange! Nor is it blue, more of a purpley red with a white eye.
