hello there! i am new to 'daves garden' and really need some help on rose bushes! would anyone know of a rose bush/climber that can tolerate partial shade, and is cold hearty. i am in zone 5, trying to find something that can grow on either side of my bay window on the north side of my house. unfortunately, not a whole lot of sun on that side. half gets about 3 or so hours in the morning, and the other half get the same time of evening sun. would i even be able to grow a rose bush in such conditions? i've seen some partial shade rose bushes, but they are always sold out, so i'm having a heck of a time trying to find something! any and all help would so very much be appreciated! thank you so much!
You might check out the rose Zephirine Drouhin. It's a beautiful medium pink with wonderful fragrence. It can be grown as a climber, tolerates shade and is hardy through zone 5. I love mine, and it is growing in shade with a northern exposure...hasn't missed a beat with heat or cold.
