‘Rambler’ or ‘Climber’? Parsing the rose grower’s lexicon

Next week Anne will take us into her amazing rose garden to cut a carefree rose bouquet. She has more than 900 different roses on her property, mostly ramblers and climbers. Several in her collection are the only ones of their kind within the United States. And though she assures me that she does not consider herself an avid floral arranger and generally prefers her roses on the vine, she loves the idea of expanding other’s notions about what a rose can be and how to more fully incorporate them into one’s daily living. Be sure to check back.

Here are a few links to previous visits with Anne:

A Walk Through Rambler Rose Heaven

Scentimental Old Fool

900 roses help make Anne Belovich my newest hero.

One of my favorite roses, 'Maid of Kent', cut generously from my own garden. Anne grows 'Maid of Kent' in her garden, as well, and affectionately refers to this stunning rose as a 'modern rambler'.

Hi David,
I know Anne and have had the privilege of photographing her gorgeous garden. It was wonderful to see this video you did as well as the photos of her garden on your other blog. If you’d like the link to a slide show I did, let me know. It’s a very photogenic place isn’t it?
