Mme Lombard/Lambard

Post by AutumnDamask on 20th August 2011, 17:57

Quick question... How big can she grow? I can find references to 5' but then I found a reference to her growing to 10'.... Don't want to go and buy^ a climber for an arch if she is up to the task.

If it was me... I'd buy the climber and let 'MME Lambard' do its thing... it's reputed to resent pruning/interference.

We have one that is pushing 5 metres diameter and 3 metres high. It is growing up over the top of one of our stands that we have wisteria growing on.

They don't like hard pruning too much. Light pruning is not to bad. Lovely flowers but a bit vicious as far as thorns go.

Thanks for that input. Smile

Mine don't tend to get a heavy pruning... will probably fit in quite well. Wink

Oh well. Back to looking at the Mistydowns Specials Catalogue. Innocent

Wendy... I have a spare [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and possibly a spare [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you would like a climber for your arch. Also have a spare [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]... all once flowering roses unfortunately. Also got a truck load of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and might have a spare [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (again, both once flowering roses)... um might have a few other gems around too that you could have... will have to look around and see what's left... might have a spare 'Lamarque' too... it might be a bit too much rose for an arch though.

Thanks!
I am thinking a small-ish climber? Mid-dark pink. Eyeing off Mme Driout....[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

While we are talking about smallish climbers does anyone grow Souvenir de Madame Boullet, Clg

We have a couple from Mystydowns (last years batch) and they don't seem to show any interest in climbing.

Same here... been unseasonably warm today... almost 20 I reckon! Unheard of! Wink So been out in the garden all day digging trenches and making drainage... my shed flooded last week Sad I reckon I should advertise my place as a boot-camp style fat farm and charge people a fortune to come and lose weight here... guaranteed to lose weight... sweat like a pig... and find muscles you didn't even know you had Digger and get dirt in places you don't even want to know Shocked No guarantee you'll be able to walk again after it though Injured

At least with all the rain we have had it is easy digging!!

The roses are taking off like rockets at the moment. Am trying not to think about the beds that still need weeding and remulching. affraid
