25690 - Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Bourbon Rose Rosa hybrida Zephirine Drouhin
One of the most famous of the romantic Bourbon roses, Zephirine has maintained her popularity for a number of reasons. Her non-fading, cerise pink, old-fashioned blooms have exquisite fragrance reminiscent of raspberries, she is one of the few roses that blooms well in open shade, she tolerates poor soil and air pollution better than most roses, and best of all, her canes are nearly thornless, making them easy to train on a pillar, trellis, wall or arch. Light green, semi-glossy foliage densely lines her stems. Blooming abundantly in late spring, some repeat bloom can be expected, more so in mild climates. Flower size: 3-4". Fragrance: Strong Raspberry. Hybridizer: Bizot, 1868. Grown own root.
