Beautiful Rose but need full sun
Denise Parker from TN wrote on April 27, 2020

I purchased 2 for my new home in 2018. One was placed in the very front of my home and one on the side. The side location was somewhat shady and has not bloomed to date yet it's still alive(the description stated it would grow well with little sunlight so I thought the side with its partial shade location would do but it didn't. You live and you learn. The one placed in the from of the house is blooming profusely. I moved the one located on the side to the front and I'm hopeful it will get what it needs there and will bloom just like the other. When that one rose blooms the smell and the visual is just incredible.

I ordered five of these and planted them in March on the north side of my deck. It is now June and the first bloom has popped out! It smells amazing! More spicy than sweet, but a very lovely fragrance. I am very pleased with the condition of the plants and they all have done very well.

My first plants did wonderfully in KS. Super growth and lovely blooms with an intoxicating fragrance. Saw the sale and decided now I need two more plants at my new home in NC!!

Best thornless climber, shade tolerance ever.

Bought my first Zéphirine Drouhin over 20 yrs ago, now have to replace one of 4 for a trellis. Blooming in part shade, wonderful old-fashioned smell, they are all totally disease-free even here in humid Southern Indiana. Highly recommend.

Vigorous and Gorgeous

I purchase this climber (my very first rose ever) and it arrived early March here in Florida. I was afraid the sun on the south side of my house would burn the leaves (and afraid the north side would promote disease). WOW. In just under a month the rose is full of leaves and I already have two blooms. It's incredible!
