Cecile Brunner Climbing Rose Plant
Cecile Brunner climbing roses are truly bountiful in the summer months. Masses of light pink flowers contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage as the rose climbs high in your garden in all its glory. The sweet scent epitomises an English rose and adds to the delicate appeal of Cecile Brunner. The rose itself can climb to 20 ft, ensuring a wide spread of perfectly formed rose blooms are visible from all angles. Beautifully informal and flowing, Cecile Brunner climbing roses are perfect for a house wall or a trellis in a cottage garden.

Great for your garden
Like most climbers, Cecile Brunner roses are happiest trained against a wall or trellis. The plant is pretty tough but flowers best in full sun. The flowers themselves relatively small (they make wonderful buttonholes) but there is no shortage of them sitting amongst the deep green foliage when in bloom.
