Description

Long-blooming, thornless, and very profuse, even in shade

Introduced in 1868 and a favorite ever since, Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose is a romantic, fantastically fragrant, old-fashioned rose that is still one of the most popular climbers today. No modern rose has been able to exceed it for sheer performance, rich raspberry scent, and generous season-long bloom, and if you make Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose part of your landscape, you will treasure its beauty and generosity of bloom.

Peaking in spring and fall, the loose, 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 24 richly colored petals that are infused with a strong, evocative raspberry scent. Just one flower is a delight, so you can imagine what a vaseful looks and smells like.

This old French Bourbon rose grows vigorously to 15 to 20 feet high and 4 to 6 feet wide and, remarkable for any rose, performs well in part shade. Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose is an excellent choice for north-facing walls and areas with little sunlight. Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose will continue to bloom in summer, but its heaviest showing will usually be in the cooler temperatures of spring and fall.

The rich, medium-green foliage (coppery-purple when young) is very mildew resistant, and the canes are thornless, making Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose 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.

Zephirine Drouhin Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

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 shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

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 shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This climbing rose smells soooo good. I recently moved and had to leave it, sadly. I will definitely order another one! Thornless--big plus!
