Roses In Alphabetical Order
- 'Zephirine Drouhin' Roses (Bourbon, Introduced - 1868)
- The semi-double cerise-pink flowers of
'Zephirine Drouhin' are 3 1/2 to 4 inches across
and are loosely formed. Borne in profusion in spring, they
continue to appear intermittently until fall, when the
plant once again flowers heavily. Blooms are very sweetly
scented. Young leaves are a coppery purple, maturing to
dark green, and the canes are smooth.
'Zephirine Drouhin' rose is a vigorous grower with an upright,
semi-climbing habit. This rose can be pruned as a shrub placed in a large border
or displayed as a specimen, and it makes a fine formal hedge. Or, train it as a
climber on a trellis, fence, or porch, where this rose may grow as high as 20 feet. The lack
of prickles makes it a good choice for planting near
walkways or play areas.
- 'Zinger' Roses (Miniature, Introduced - 1978)
- Actually a semi-double rose
with 11 petals, 'Zinger' rose opens so flat that it appears single. Its
bright red, slightly fragrant petals are set off by yellow stamens on
1 1/2-inch blooms. Plants grow 12- to 18- inches high, with medium
to dark green, glossy leaves.
