Glad you like this one. Unfortunately i think Alchemist would be to strong for an obelisk 😣@frankieshep

Any recommendations or should I choose a shrub rose instead? @melvynprentice

I do love old fashioned roses in particular. All my photos are of clients flowers and garden. Most of my rose photos are at one garden where there is an extensive collection of old roses. I have worked there part time for just over 20 years @frankieshep

If obelisk is 6 to 8 ft high look at pillar roses. 2 white ones which fit the bill are Swan Lake and Waltz@frankieshep

It's only 6 ft so difficult to find something that won't run rampant .. Learnt a hard lesson with rambling rector .. should have realised it was all in the name but thought I could control it 😏 thanks for recommendations @ melvynprentice
