Gardening – A Thornless Rose


This is the Zephirine Drouhin rose.  It was bred by Bizot in 1868 and is a completely thornless climber (10-12 feet is reasonable to expect) with a strong, old rose fragrance.  Takes about three years to really fill in and bloom like mad, but it’s worth the wait—not to mention, the whole thornless thing is great around kids and pets.  Give it a try.

three years. That's crazy long. At least it's worth it when it finally fully comes out.
