I have 2 unknown ramblers that I am trying to identify. The details are posted with pictures at the link.

Thanks for looking,
Cheers Collin

RE: Unknown ramblers

Collin, the darker one could be Crimson Ramber. It is from multiflora, so the stipules (flanges at base of leaf stems) would be fringed. The other common cherry-red ones are Excelsa, which generally has larger clusters, and Chevy Chase, which I haven't seen. As I recall, Excelsa does not have fringed stipules.

The light pink is probably Dorothy Perkins. Light rose pink, very tough, but mildewy.

The look nice on the tripods.

RE: Unknown ramblers

I suspected that the pink one was Dorothy Perkins.

And yes, the dark pink one does have fringed stipules, so perhaps it is Crimson Rambler. I had thought Excelsa.

Thanks so much for the info.


RE: Unknown ramblers

Crimson Rambler does have the white centers, which I forgot to mention.
