A house wall, a privacy screen or a pergola is often beautified with the graceful and decorative climbing roses. There are many different varieties that differ in color and flowering. Since most rose varieties are now bred to be very robust, they are often the first choice. The following article summarizes the most beautiful repeat-flowering rambler roses.

Difference between rambler roses and climbing roses

The roses that grow upwards on a house wall or pergola are usually referred to as climbing roses. And rambler roses are also known. However, these are not the same strains, as there is a big difference between the two types. The climbers , as the climbing roses are also called, have upright and stiff shoots that can be easily pulled up walls. The rambler roses, on the other hand, have long, flexible shoots that also have hooked spikes. This type of rose always needs a support and a climbing aid so that the soft shoots get a hold. The following is a list of repeat-blooming rambler and climbing roses by their flower colors, which are as follows:

  • white and cream flowers
  • pink, fuchsia and violet flowers
  • red flowers
  • yellow flowers

Note: Rambler roses not only grow on house walls and pergolas, they can also easily grow into trees with their meter-long shoots, which can be particularly decorative. Climbing roses, on the other hand, are more suited to rigid walls or small varieties as a shrub due to their rigidity.

White and cream flowers

If the roses have white or cream-colored flowers, then this is a very restrained color that suits both a designer garden and a colorful cottage garden. Because the white color can adapt to any environment, is neutral and suits any style of garden. The white and cream-colored roses also have the largest selection of varieties, which looks like this:
