Zephirine Drouhin

I think this rose deserves a post of its own. It's climbing, thornless, with a nice fragrance. Rose's have edible petals, and are great for the skin. I ordered this one from Heirloom Roses



I can't wait till it fills in this steel rod trellis, which is supporting it, in my front yard.

This is a gorgeous old rose! I've planned to plant it in my garden too this year. Already the name is so unusual and I love the pink color!

snappy - I definetly recommend this rose, and think you will be happy with it. I chose it mostly because it was thornless, I thought that was pretty cool.
