Any names for spiny rose creepers. I once grew one in Stellembosch , South Africa. I now live in HK and would like to grow a thorny creeper to discourage intruders. USDA zones 10 to 11 A preferably shade tolerant

Thank you so much for writing!!!
There are some fabulous spiny rose creepers (here we call them hedge roses),

Let me check my notes, do a bit of research for you and write you back again.
I love to help, teach and converse.

How much coverage do you need? How many metres do you need to protect?

Here is some good advice I have found out today:
There are a few that will suceed in your needs:

Madame Louis Odier, will bloom with shade, especially in the afternoons.
Try also


Belle Portugaise (grows long arching canes too, and grows long and large) see picture of
this rose on Help Me Find a web site for finding roses all over the world.
You can use it like DavesGarden without paying a membership fee, but to get the best
help on that site, it will cost 24USD or comparable.

You also might order roses from Holland to make sure they are named and exactly what
you want.

Do not get "own root roses" for planting in your zones. They will get sick and die. Its better
to get them on grafted stock, preferably Rosa fortuniana stock or Dr. Huey stock.

These are some to help you get started.
I was thinking about Rosa Rugosa but that rose, although perfect in every way for you might
not be so vigorous in zone 10/11.

PS Write back with anything you need I will be glad to help as I can.
