Richly colorful and blessed with an intoxicating, strong raspberry scent, Zephirine Drouhin offers a tasty cocktail of vivid pink and liberating aroma. After taking in the charisma and romance, you'll quickly want to order another.

Introduced in France during the reign of Napoleon III, Zephirine Drouhin remains one of the world's most popular climbing roses. Blooming prolifically in the spring and fall, with reddish-pink, 4-inch flowers composed of as many as 30 densely colored petals producing Bourbon-like fragrance, it remains a strong performer with remarkable stamina.

The relaxed, semi-double blooms create an almost overwhelming sensory experience during spring and fall flushes. The foliage, a metallic purple when young, provides a medium-green complement to the deep pink blooms. The vigorous climber, which grows well in little sunlight, can reach 20 feet and can grow to 6 feet wide.

An outstanding choice for a trellis or porch, Zephirine Drouhin also can be trimmed into a formal hedge. Don't worry about baseballs or flying disks under the bushes or clumsy missteps—these canes have no thorns that could leave a nasty scratch.

Flourishing best in moist, well-drained, loamy soil, this proven favorite thrives in a wide variety of other climates, too. For performance and stamina, it maintains it remains among the climbing elite.
