Rose Trellis

Day 140 - May 20, 2011 - Rose Trellis

Last summer Kevin Snider helped me build this rose trellis. The roses haven't had a chance to fill in completely but it's starting to look pretty good.

On the right is ‘Champneys’ Pink Cluster’ (Champneys, U.S., 1811). Although it isn't really a climbing rose the support is helpful, anyway. On the left is ‘Crépuscule’ (Francis Dubreuil, France, 1904). Both of them are Noisette roses and bloom pretty well off and on all summer. ‘Crépuscule’ has the stronger scent but both are nice in that regard.
