Is it a rose? Or is it?

Our visit to the Morris Arboretum, included this little puzzle.  As we first wandered upon this plant my initial thought was "I have never seen a Rose so huge".  Then I looked closer and thought that isn't a rose -- but yes, it is definitely a rose blossom,  but not rose leaves.....

Mystery solved! It is a climbing rose in a crab apple tree.   So clever.  Reminded me of something you might find in Alice in Wonderland.

They do that a lot in England with clematis. It works very well. Thanks for sharing.

What a gorgeous idea! I will have to tell my live in gardener about this idea. You know, he is the Rose Guy. We love all forms of roses here.
