Albertine Rose

Rambler Rose

The Albertine Rose is a popular rambling rose that has been around for over 75 years.

It is a Rambler rose that is a large-flowered climber, with lovely salmon/pink roses.

This Once blooming rose, displays medium sized cup-shaped blooms, that grow in clusters.

It is the best climbing rose for growing on a fence, where it shines to perfection. The semi-lax stems require continuous tying as the plant grows. Encouraging 'Albertine' to grow horizontal, will cause it to grow up to 15 feet, with considerable flowers!

The Albertine rose is also widely grown on Pergolas, or a wall.

This is a great rose for mild (warm) climates, where it is one of the most widely grown of all the climbing roses! This fast growing rose, thrives on neglect, and blooms incredibly.

It will root very easily from a cutting.

This Wichurana Rambler is intensely fragrant. The scent carries on the air, to fill your yard with sweetness.

It has lots of prickles (thorns) that help it easily climb through small trees, where it is a beautiful sight.

Even soil type isn't a problem for this rose, it isn't fussy a bit!
