Who knows their roses?

    Zephirine Drouhin is a climber, very perfumed, almost thornless, bright pink, lots of flowers, will grow in shade, but can be prone to disease.

    Pictured is Constance Spry, but I don't know where it will turn up in this post!


    The rose with the strongest perfume in my garden is Constance Spry which David Austin bred and he uses as a parent to breed in perfume for many of his roses. But it only flowers once and is quite prickly. Mine is a large shrub, about 1m60, but it can be grown as a small climber.

    Dordogne and Norfolk
