Rose gone wild

This started out as a 5ft standard weeping Renae rose, and it would have been gorgeous in itself. The root stock(the tall stick part that the Renae rose would have been grafted on to) has taken over. This happens when the rose has been damaged below the point of the graft. It is still pretty magnificent and it's Boggys(hubby) favourite. The root stock rose that has taken over is the climbing 'Blackboy'.








The Renae rose still makes an appearance


The climbing 'Gold Bunny' has been damaged too on the right and the root stock has gone nuts

The climbing 'Pierre de Ronsard' on the left is a gorgeous romantic rose.
It always comes out in an abundance of beautiful flowers.

    1. To tell the truth there isn't much I do to this one. I occasionally pick a bunch, or boggy cuts of a 'limb' if it gets in the way. It flowering is one of the things, which are many, that I look forward to happening in the garden each year.
