Thornless canes!

This classic old-fashioned climber offers big semi-double blooms of bright pink, peaking in spring and fall.
Introduced in 1868, 'Zephirine Drouhin' is a romantic, fantastically fragrant, old-fashioned Rose that is still one of the most popular Climbing Roses today, especially in Europe. No Modern Rose has been able to exceed it for sheer performance and season-long bloom.

Peaking in spring and fall, the loose, semi-double blossoms of vivid cerise-carmine provide outstanding mass effect. Each bloom is about 4 inches across, opening from a long, pointed bud and made up of 20 to 30 richly colored petals that are infused with a strong damask scent.

The plant grows vigorously to 15 to 20 feet high and 4 to 5 feet wide and, remarkable for any Rose, performs well in shade! It's an excellent choice for north-facing walls and areas with little sunlight.

The rich, dark green foliage (coppery-purple when young) is very mildew-resistant, and the canes are thornless, making it great for planting where traffic is heavy or children are nearby. This classic, time-tested climbing rose is the perfect choice to train over a trellis or porch, or trim into a formal hedge. Plant in moist, well-drained, loamy soil. Zones 5-9.

This rose is beautiful and smells great. It has many flowers this spring. Highly recommended.
Fantastic Performer

Planted two of these on a north facing wall and even with the unusual growing season the midwest experienced this year (snow in May, endless rain in July) these roses did outstanding! Still growing, even now in November after two rounds of frost.
Grows in shade

I really like their Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose. It's rare to find a rose that does well in shade.
Just about perfect for partially shaded area.
