Roses Everywhere

by Ariane ~ June 26, 2012

Just an idea of the profusion of roses blooming in June at Giverny!

For a few weeks, Monet’s garden becomes a rose garden.

Rambling, climbing roses climb on dozens of metallic structures, typical for a garden designed in the 19th Century.

    Hi Ariane,
    I love your blog, and sincerely wish you had been writing it at the time I came to Giverny, 6 or so years ago. Your writing and photos reflect the spirit of Giverny so well. Congratulations, and keep writing. I shall pop in for inspiration from time to time! I have put a link on my own blog to yours here,
    with best wishes,

    Good Morning
    We had the pleasure of visiting Giverny for the first time last week. It was even more amazing than we had expected.
    There were huge tree-like roses near the entrance to the property near the wall in full bloom with smallish white flowers. I am sure that it is a rather common type, but if you could share the name with me I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks for the help.

    Hello I visited the house and garden, and am interested in knowing what is the cultivar for the purple roses. I saw the list of plants, but the roses are not indicated. Thank you.

    Thank you for your visit. The purple roses are called Rhapsody in Blue.

    Hello, do you know the name of pink rose climber ? Small but profuse bloomer

    Hello Agata, as the rose is not labelled, I’m sorry I don’t know its name.
