I'm growing my second Wildeve (moved house and got another one) and while its looks are nothing to write home about (it's a floppy short climber and the flowers relatively small), the fragrance is magnificent. And that's the reason I bought it in the first place.

Does very well in dappled shade, unlike a lot of roses, and flowers prolifically.

Location: Melbourne, AU
Zone: 9b
