Rambling Roses

What's the difference between a climber and a rambler? Climbers tend to flower repeatedly throughout the summer whereas ramblers tend to flower once a year. Ramblers are best suited to growing through trees or as ground cover. They grow at great speed so can be very useful coverage. They produce some of the most beautiful hips after flowering.
