A Super Climbing Duo with Clematis 'Ernest Markham'

Planting Roses, Rose Gardening, Designing with Roses, English Roses


A nice way of adding color to your walls and fences! Entwine the spectacular Climbing Rose 'American Pillar' which will flaunt its rich pink blossoms, with the showy blossoms of Clematis 'Ernest Markham' for a spectacular color show! These two charming climbers are underplanted with the contrasting blue blossoms of campanula lactiflora.

Climbing roses and clematis are perfect companions. They happily share the same arch or trellis, both reaching for the sun. They have the same natural needs, require the same growing conditions and benefit from the same fertilizers. They often are of similar sizes with the result that neither swamps the other. They also complement one another. While the fragrance is rare in Large Flowered clematis, it is fairly common in roses. When combined, they often look many times more beautiful than on a standalone basis.
