Gertrude Jekyll is an especially good candidate for pegging as it will send out very tall canes which are stiff but not so stiff that they can not be pulled over.
While Gertrude Jekyll has fallen out of favor with many growers because of her growth habit (she is sometimes referred to as a Jolly Green Giant because she often grows straight up rather than out) and the fact that she falls prey to blackspot very easily. I enjoy her vigorous growth and see her as something of a small climber and I forgive her trouble with blackspot because her flowers are very beautiful and some of the most fragrant you will ever come across. Additionally, her Spring/early Summer flush of flowers is one of the most dazzling displays you will ever see. I will share pictures of her Spring blooms once the time comes.Another way of pegging a rose is to bury the end of the cane in a technique that is called layering.
