Rambler

Rambling roses are rampant growers which are well suited for training along fences, walls and bank sides, throwing up long non-flowering shoots from near ground level in summer time. These shoots produce clusters of flowers along their length the following year, and are then finished. Therefore, pruning regime should follow this cycle by cutting away the old stems once flowering is over to ensure a new crop of growth and flowers in subsequent years. Although Ramblers are technically a different class to Climbing roses, they are sometimes included in the same group. They have similarly long, flexible stems, but are usually distinguished from true climbers in two ways: Firstly by their larger overall size (10m is not uncommon) and secondly by their single flush of bloom. Although termed 'rambling' they lack the ability to cling to supports on their own and need to be manually trained and tied over structures, such as arbours and fences - unlike natural climbers such as clematis or wisteria. (Notable varieties include: 'American Pillar' and the huge 'Rambling Rector').
