Description

Ghislaine de Feligonde Rambling Rose

Ghislaine de Feligonde is an old rambling rose, that remains popular because of her ability to cover a wall, the longevity of her flowers and the precious ability to do well on a north facing wall. Each rose looks like a sculpted dessert: whipped peaks of apricoty-peachy-creamy petals with a garnish of golden stamens in the centre to complete the look.
Being small and dear, there are lots of them with good, green leaves and, another joy, she has almost thornless stems. That makes a difference when you are up a ladder pruning! As a RHS AGM holder, she performs reliable and rarely succumbs to illness.
All in all, one of the best of our range of rambling roses.

Growing Ghislaine de Feligonde

A thornless rambling rose that is unfazed by a North facing wall is a rare thing, killing several garden problems with one stone. She works well close to paths and doors because she won't scratch. Her colouring works well with brick and stone, and she will quickly disguise any shed. She teams up well with other apricot roses like Lady Marmalade or Infinity, or you could emphasise her unusual colouring with a neutral rose Champagne Moments.

Being a rambler, with their more relaxed pruning regime, you could thread any number of other climbers like clematis or a scented honeysuckle through her stems.

Did You Know?

First introduced in the early 1900s, we can only assume that Ghislaine de Feligonde was a member of the French noble family Pellissier, whose history goes back to 1602 and who owned Château de Féligonde. The name Féligonde implies bliss or luckiness, and the water source at Château de Féligonde is traditionally thought to help women conceive.

Ghislaine has long fallen out of favour as a name in France, and looks set to disappear entirely. It means "pledge".

Planting Instructions

How to plant Ghislaine de Feligonde

If planting against a wall leave about 45cms (18") between plant and wall. Dig a hole deep enough to allow the graft to finish at soil level when planted and with plenty of room for the roots. Improve the soil from the hole by removing large stones, weeds, roots and other rubbish and mixing in about 25% by volume of well rotted compost or manure. Wet the roots and sprinkle with Rootgrow so it stays in contact with the roots. If planting a pot grown plant gently loosen some of the roots before planting.

Position Ghislaine de Feligonde so the roots are spread out and it is set at approximately the same level in the soil as it was before being transplanted. The union should be level with the soil when you have finished planting. Backfill the hole with the planting mix, firming it down as you go. Water in thoroughly. Water again a day or two later and then keep watering in dry spells.

Feed and mulch with well-rotted manure in spring and keep well watered during dry periods for the first year.

Hybrid Teas are pruned in late winter when the strongest shoots can be cut back to an outward-facing bud 30-40 cms above soil level and the weakest shoots are removed altogether. Ghislaine de Felogonde should be deadheaded throughout the summer to encourage continuous flowering.
