Comment from the gardener: This wall of Cl Cecile Brunner faces the neighbors to the east. They
say 'good fences make good neighbors' and I can't think of a better
fence than one adorned with roses. Fortunately they seem to agree and
allow me free access to maintain that portion of the garden from the
outside. And accessing this part of the garden from the neighbor's side
of the fence is truly essential as I can barely force my way through the
jungle these days.
Cl Cecile Brunner is one of those roses that is like a gorilla - what
does the gorilla eat? Anything he wants. What does CB eat? All the
adjacent roses, and all the pathways. Poor Tiffany used to be a
featured player next to the fence. Now it pokes its canes through gaps
in the gorilla.
This year I pruned it hard to get rid of the old growth which has been
hiding for too many years. I don't even know if the poor thing bloomed
this year. It might have lost the fight.
