The quintessential Romanica rose, Zéphirine Drouhin is redolent with that wonderful old-fashioned rose fragrance that brings back memories of days gone by. Because of its nearly thornless form, this is an excellent choice for use in fresh-cut floral arrangements and bouquets. Flowers are gorgeous in an antique dark pink color that really pops against the deep green foliage. What a sight when the arching branches of this climber are filled with flowers. Plus, each rose lasts up to 10 days, whether on the vine or in a vase. The strong scent is sure to bring butterflies to the landscape, too. Makes a wonderful privacy screen or boundary definer for a backyard "secret garden." This multiple award winner is a vigorous grower that covers a trellis, fence or arbor with ease. A marvelous addition to any landscape. Rosa
