    Hi Rubee. Dancing Queen is a lovely rose for shade. I'm not sure about scent - I'll have to Google it!

    Try looking at the David Austin website, it gives information on roses for different situations.

  • One of my favourite climbing roses for a shady spot is Rosa Vicomtesse Pierre de Fou ........ it's a beautiful strong coppery pink with dark foliage, it repeat flowers and has a gorgeous perfume.
