The Zephirine Drouhin was introduced in 1868 and has truly stood the test of time. Offering unprecedented color and scent for over a century, it's a tried-and-true climbing rose with reliable blooms, unlike any other rose variety you've seen.
The Zephirine Drouhin is characterized by a bright pink color with touches of fuchsia. Starting with close, pointed buds exposing full, semi-double petals, each Zephirine Rose is a delight to the eyes. And they don't just look amazing ... but they also emanate rich perfume!
Even better? You get roses from late spring to the first frost almost continuously. Typically, repeat bloomers in the rose family are unheard-of, but Zephirine Drouhin is in a league of its own. The semi-gloss green foliage of this heirloom plant, which appears brilliant copper-red as it first grows, provides the numerous pink roses with the ideal backdrop.
And its thornless growth is also extremely resistant to mildew, so when it comes to the Drouhin, there's no need or fuss. You get a climbing rose, prolific bloomer, and robust grower all in one. Attaining impressive heights of 15 to 20 feet, this rose is well-suited to trellises and high arbors over porches. It can even be trained as a hedge or tree!
Best of all, you get the benefits of the Zephirine Drouhin delivered right to your door. You won't find a better smelling, more beautiful rose at your local garden center since most of their bare-root varieties are bred for disease resistance and low-maintenance applications only.
But when you order your Zephirine from Brighter Blooms, you get a rose that's bred for beauty, strong growth and healthy roots in a giant size that's ready to deliver color quickly.
The Zephirine Drouhin Rose is years in the making, developed to perfection so that you reap the rewards. Don't wait - order your Zephirine today!
1. Planting: Choose a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch around the surrounding soil.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than for shaping purposes, no pruning is required for your Zephirine Drouhin Rose.
