I have inherited a rose bush, I think it is really pretty but I am not sure what to do with it. It is at the front of the border and is quite floppy! I wonder if it is actually a climber but I don't know how to tell the difference.
I have randomly stuck a bamboo pole in the middle of it to try and control it a little. Does anyone recognise it and/or can advise me how to improve how it looks.
Taken from the back
It's probably a shrub rose although which one I have no idea.
Are you sure it is a rose? The foliage looks different. At the risk of appearing an idiot, is it a Peony?
Looks very rosy to me
I've got one that flops, Charles de Mills. I'm going to get OH to build me a metal spiral for it to grow through
It looks a bit like Golden Celebration, one of the David Austin roses. It might have grown a bit floppy this year as we have had perfect growing weather - damp and warm! And the weight of those flowers must pull the stems down a lot - how beautiful it is!
I agree with Potsandpansies . Golden Celebrations has lovely perfume but the weight of the flower heads on thin stems causes them to flop
