Zéphirine Drouhin

Known as the thornless rose, Zéphirine Drouhin remains as popular today as in the late 1800s as a landscape ornamental or cut flower. This Bourbon climber flushes with large, double blossoms throughout the season. It is one of the few roses that will tolerate moderate to deeper shade. It is best to cut the blossoms for indoor enjoyment of the strong damask fragrance and encourage re-bloom.
