I agree with you @Daren. Semi tropical plants and the British weather are not the best of companions and can be costly in losses in our damp climate and more recently bad winter. I think gardeners have learnt from their mistakes and are returning to more traditional planting.Roses are coming back in to fashion in England a few years back People round my way wanted Semi Tropical type gardens & all the old English style plants like roses where out ............but not anymore
@Daren I've seen that done a time or two. Once even a pink rose, as you can see. For rosé wine, I suppose!
I have found since moving to North Carolina that there is such a thing as a wild rose. They grow everywhere up here. They are a vine that can reach 15 feet tall. They produce no flowers
We have wild roses in Ohio, but ours flower. Tiny flowers about the size of a nickel. (About 21 mm, for those who don't live with nickels! .) I'll take a picture this summer when they bloom and post it here.
Here is a wild one - volunteering to grow in the cement surrounding the dumpster at work!!

I have happily pointed out the milkweed and wild roses to my bosses so many times that they have told the landscaping crew to quit spraying for weeds! (I'm sure they are still charging the same, so they don't care!!).
