Fragrant Climber Zephirine Drouhin Antique Rose

  • Long-Blooming, Fragrant Roses
  • Grows Well in Full Sun or Part Shade
  • Nearly Thornless Canes
  • Winter Hardy

Zephirine Drouhin Rose is a vigorous climbing rose that puts on an incredible show when in full bloom! This old-fashioned classic is often in demand, but generally hard to find. This climber has large flowers sometimes as many as 25-30 petals.

One is sure to look amazing climbing your garden wall or trained against a trellis. It is a great vertical accent to be planted on a pillar or larger garden obelisk in a nice sunny area.

Many like to train the longer canes along a fence. This opens the plant up for full exposure to the sun so it can produce maximum amounts of bloom.

Some even like to plant them as a colorful freeform and informal hedge. Train them over the top of your front entrance or patio. Grow them up and over a pergola or at an entrance to a garden room.

Zephirine Drouhin is a remarkable climbing rose for several reasons. It’s a vigorous climber so you won’t have to fuss with it to see results. It’s also nearly thornless, so when you do decide to work with it, you don’t have to worry as much about risking injury to do so.

Zephirine Drouhin Rose will grow in almost any soil type, as long as it is well drained. This rose can adapt to a part shade situation. It also opens the door to being able to use it in more areas of your landscape.

If you dead head the first round of spent blooms, it will encourage the next wave of flowers sooner. The new growth develops at the leaf axil just below where you trimmed off the old bloom. You can coax new flower development weeks sooner with a simple deadheading after each wave of bloom.

To maintain healthy vigor with your climbing roses, every few years you may need to remove one of the oldest, thickest canes out to the ground. Do this right after you have enjoyed the first round of flowers.

This will encourage new shoots from the rootstock that will push out nice, long, straight young canes. You’ll have canes that are carefully trained where you want them to be.

Those new long cases will produce flowers next year, so be careful not to trim them back.

As if the Zephirine Drouhin’s remarkable qualities aren’t enough, it’s also incredibly beautiful and prolific in bloom. An abundance of 4-inch, deep-pink, semi-double flowers are very fragrant. They’ll appear in May and continue on until frost. You’ll enjoy their sweet fragrance all summer and into fall.

The new growth is reddish, and the leaves have a delightful bronze color that matures to a glossy, dark green hue that is thick and vibrant in appearance. Even after the foliage drops in autumn, the purplish coloring of the canes adds an attractive accent to the winter landscape.

Zephirine Drouhin will add height to your garden by elevating its spectacular, floral display to eye-level. It’s an absolute must-have if you’re seeking an antique, climbing rose with gorgeous pink color that’s also incredibly hardy and easy care.

This pink flowered climber has that classic rose fragrance that you will remember from the old fashioned roses – you know, when a rose smelled like a rose!
