Still going strong after many decades
summer rose from WA wrote on February 20, 2020

I purchased a zepherine drouhin more than 20 years ago - maybe up to 30 years ago. I originally planted it by a trellis in a shadier area and it did fine. The trellis gave out and I decided to plant a hydrangea in the shadier spot so the I dug up the zepherin drouhin and transplanted it. I was in a hurry and basically just dug a hole, backfilled and watered the spot. This was at least 11 years ago and it blooms now better than ever - this is a tough rose. Most of my roses are behind a deer fence. This one is not and it has roses blooming (with deadheading) all summer. It is higher than the deer in my area like to nibble. The scent is amazing. My friends will get out of their cars just to smell this rose.

Amazing longevity and gorgeous rose

I bought 8 zepherine drouhin roses from you 19 years ago. They were all planted around a very large trellis. We have held two gorgeous weddings under these roses and they are still blooming amazingly. They have never been sprayed and minimally fertilized. We just water them well and prune them. Alas, the trellis is so old it is beginning to collapse. We will cut the roses to 18 inches next year, rebuild the trellis and hope the roses all survive this severe pruning. Thanks again for an amazing rose!

So far they are growing beautifully!

Wow, am I excited and happy to report that these rose bushes I ordered back in March of 2018 are doing very well! I ordered seven of them and planted five of them in the front of our home which faces north. Even though they are in a north-facing area they get about two hours of morning sun and about another three and a half hours of afternoon/early evening sun. So they are getting around five hours a day. Eventually when they grow up high and reach their typical height they will get even more sun throughout the summer. It is now July 10th and I am excited to report that I got my first bloom! I had to take a whiff. The fragrance in HEAVENLY! More buds are about to pop open very soon. When I got all seven of them they were only 11-12" long bare sticks with little bright green eyes on all of the canes. Now just a tad more than three months later they are nearly three feet tall and wide and are really filling out. I first had to plant them in pots before I had the chance to get them into the ground. Their permanent home simply wasn't ready. After doing all that I could to nourish them I thought that two of the seven weren't going to make it. I thought I would have to call for a refund or store credit. But eventually the last two finally took hold and they are growing too! I planted them on the east side of our home and they get about three and a half hours of sun. It might not be enough but even if they give me a rose here and there I'll be content. I just hope the foliage grows and they reach their maximum height. My only issue is that I noticed that white powdery mildew seems to be a problem. Maybe I contact Jackson & Perkins to see what the best product is to get rid of it. The new growth is the only affected area. I wish I could provide progress photos. Assuming they make it through the mild Pacific Northwest winters here I anticipate these doing quite well here. Thank you, Jackson & Perkins! I love my climbing roses!

A little small

I received ZD in good condition with very nice packaging. This rose was on the small side as the canes were about half the size of a pencil. It did have a good root system and is growing in my garden... I ordered over 25 roses from different companies this spring and this was by far the smallest. I hope to update this review in about 3-4 months!

Cannot kill

I had six plants. Best Roses on earth. Strong scent and color. I went through a divorce and neglected them for 2+ years. They were getting skimpy and on their way out. I got back into it and revived them to perfection. First bloom is always the best. Just loaded with beautiful blooms. Although always abundant, every other year it alternates good then better.
