Hello There Rose Lovers! As you may have noticed by now, I’m a big Rosarian. I like to grow and take care of roses in my spare time. Obviously, the rose is my favorite flower. They all come in different colors, shapes and sizes. They also have different scents, characteristics and require different ways of maintenance and care.
I’d like to tell you about an outstanding and unique rose that’s been growing in my garden for about some time now. It’s the climbing Zephirine Drouhin Rose. Now, this rose is breathtaking and mesmerizing. It produces clusters of abundant pink flowers about four inch in size with almost 30 petals in full bloom. Blooming time is around early spring to autumn. It has a soothing lemon scent and the canes are THORNLESS! Yes they are!
It’s definitely one of those roses that won’t prick you while watering or pruning it. Thank God! didn’t know such rose existed. 🙂 The rose itself has dark green foliage that’s quite resistant to mildew and aphids. It grows in Zones 5-9 and will thrive in shady areas. Mine took a while to establish, about 2-3 years, and after that, it became a prolific wonderful bloomer in my garden. I guess it just needs some getting used to.
This climbing rose is ideal for any trellis, porch or as a hedge. Can reach up to 20 feet in length and 5 feet in width. This rose can get very dense with its blooms and foliage, so be prepared to be mesmerized 🙂
