The roses have been particularly splendid this year, I don't know why, we didn't get any extra rain; perhaps it is because the winter here was so mild.
One of the most spectacular and charming climbing roses in my garden is Climbing Eden: most aptly named for this beautiful rose is exactly what you would expect to find in paradise.
Eden is a french rose hybridized by Meilland and does extremely well in warmer climates. Although a robust climber it is restrained in growth and doesn't intrude as so many climbing roses do. The flowers are amazing ~ multi-petaled, with a slight variation in color, globular in shape and sweet smelling. Stylistically, they fit in perfectly with David Austin and antique roses.
I am making plans to replant a large border adjacent to my deck that is currently being rebuilt and I think including another Eden to clamber over the railing is a must. What do you think...isn't she gorgeous?
Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a rosy day.
