|A country cottage smothered with a magnificent, fragrant Climbing Rose even makes non-gardeners swoon. Trained to grow upward on trellises, arches or pergolas, they need little garden space (unless you never prune them, then some varieties could swallow a whole yard). Old plants can disguise garages or sheds. Needs full sun to bloom well. Easy to find. Nurseries, hardware stores, and some grocery stores sell them in spring. Look for older or rare varieties at specialty nurseries.
Although it blooms for only a few weeks in spring, its frothy clusters of scentless, double yellow or white flowers nearly cover the plant. Nearly evergreen and thornless, it is extremely vigorous. Try it as a ground cover.
