Comments With its tallish stature and huge trusses of pinkish flowers, Blush Rambler is something like what one might expect to get by crossing a crimson rambler with a white one. It bears pinkish flowers and it rambles. It also has few thorns. As is true for the class of ramblers, it can get mildew. Presumably, it rarely gets so bad on this rose as it did once on the ubiquitous Dorothy Perkins. The blossoms are redolent of magnolia flowers. And there is talk about training the plant in trees. It would look good on an arch or a wall. Or maybe a pergola.
