Zephirine Drouhin Rose
I planted this 20 years ago on the wall of my storage room in Mesa, AZ. Morning sun and afternoon shade. It was spectacular, vigorous, fragrant. Will try it here in Ely, NV, but suspect the harsh winter will kill it.
Beautiful in dappled shade!
This is the only rose I've ever seen that does well in open shade. I've planted it on a trellis in the space between two houses. It gets morning sun but shade the majority of the day. The rose has been in this spot for 15 years and it is thriving! When I open the windows on that side of the house, it fills the rooms with that wonderful old-rose fragrance! I am buying another to put on the other side of the house. I highly recommend this lovely rose.
LOVE this rose!
This climbing rose smells soooo good. I recently moved and had to leave it, sadly. I will definitely order another one! Thornless--big plus!
