A rambler came up (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

arose

'came up' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'a rambler' is the wordplay.
'rambler' becomes 'rose' (I've seen this in another clue).
'a'+'rose'='AROSE'

(Other definitions for arose that I've seen before include "Happened", "Came about", "''. ... by any other name would smell as sweet'' (Romeo and Juliet)", "stemmed", "appeared".)
