Prolific bloomer scents entire arborReview by FRAGRANT FRANNY
Rating
I love in some 8 and have had this rose for 30 years. She was transplanted once to her current location in my northeast arbor. I can't begin to tell the amount of pleasure I've received since she was planted all those years ago. Like the saying goes "Bloom where you are planted" and that's exactly what's she's done for all these 30 years. I fell in love with rose gardening at a young age and when we bought our home this rose was one of the first planted. Truly a joy to behold and smell. She's such an excellent rose. Never a pest, never a disease. She's almost the perfect rose if you like pink; my favorite color. You can't lose planting Zephirine Drouhin. (Posted on 6/19/2018)

Zone 8. The beginning of spring I was pleased with the amount of roses I had. It was quite a show with huge fragrant blooms. (Posted on 6/3/2018)

I planted this rose about 5 years ago and it climbs all the way up to my second story deck. As soon as you step out side you get the lovely rose scent wafting toward you, make my morning coffee delightful! Planted in zone 6

Amazing!Review by Vickie

Planted this in Zone 10 less than a month ago. I has tons of new growth, is a foot high and has 7 buds, one about to open! I think it will look lovely climbing up my mulberry tree. (Posted on 5/7/2018)
Beautiful and thrivingReview by Dawn

I'm in zone 8a. I got 2 of these and planted them last summer on either side of my arbor. They took off and I got a couple of bright pink, wonderfully fragrant flowers last year. It's growing nicely up the sides of the arbor, some of the branches are five feet high, and there's already about 20 gorgeous blooms on it. I couldn't be happier! (Posted on 4/28/2018)

I’m in Zone 9, one of the areas hit by Harvey, and this beauty is going strong even after the hurricane!

Almost immediately it seemed to climb as tall as the chimney and put out beautiful, fragrant flowers. It’s a favourite of our household. Even our neighbour loves it when some branches sneak out and crossover into the other yard.

I couldn’t recommend enough that anyone looking for a new Rose, particularly a climber, come check this baby out! (Posted on 4/22/2018)
Zephirine Drouhin RoseReview by Marlene

Zephirine Drouhin is a lovely, fragrant beauty. I love the exotic, cerise pink color of the blooms. ZD is a wonderful, own-root, ancient, Bourbon climber that has been blooming in our garden for years. As one of my favorite roses, I have named her Zephie.
I am in Washington, DC Metro area,. Zone 7. (Posted on 4/1/2018)
OutstandingReview by PAKen

I'm in southern PA, zone 6. My rose is 4 years old and spreads about 8 foot in either direction on my fence. Its fragrance is strong and the blooms are prolific. Having no thorns is also a bonus. The only negative is it's slower to repeat than most of my climbers. This is a wonderful rose. (Posted on 3/2/2018)
Zephirine smells divineReview by verica

It is too early to tell you how fabulous the rose is, but it came healthy, planted within a day of receiving, and produced a few tiny blooms within a few weeks. I will update reviews next spring. I will say that I will buy all my roses from this company. Great roses, great customer service. I have ordered 11 plants this year. All are different varieties purchased for their fragrance and habit. (Posted on 9/28/2017)
slow growingReview by Wendy

Slow growing, but may be to a mysterious lopping off at ground level in year one winter. Year 2, August has it finally picking up speed. Charming blooms. Thornless plant is perfect for my arbor.

Started blooming immediatelyReview by Alice

It bloomed from the get go practically falling over because the blooms were too big for the baby stems. It's taken a break to make new canes and they're coming on vigorously. I look forward to this rose taking over the barren brick wall of my house. (Posted on 8/11/2017)

I am new to roses but trying to follow this websites instructions. This rose bloomed within two days of arrival and is growing well already. The smell bowls me over and the blooms are a gorgeous pink. (Posted on 7/4/2017)
Beautiful and Bountiful!Review by BeachBabe

I planted 2 of these in our small, coastal yard for some vertical coverage and boy I got it!! This is an extremely vigorous, growing and spreading climber that grew quickly even the first season. There is an explosion of blooms usually in May ( this year they were about 3 weeks early because of good weather!) and then sporadic blooms the rest of the year, but I would not call it continual bloom. Mine have a pleasing but not at all strong scent--you have to walk up and stick your nose in, but the color and form of the blooms is fantastic. I don't know if I have ever grown a rose, climber or bush form that is as covered with blooms as this!! Hardy they are surviving blackspot (of course in the South) and even one of them being clobbered by our fence coming down in Hurricane Matthew last October!!! A little bent now but actually bloomed earlier and more gloriously !! Excellent rose. (Posted on 5/19/2017)
Vigorous beautiful rambler Review by Stella
Rating
Wow. This is certainly by far the most prolific rose I got from heirloom. EXACTLY what I read about and envisioned. To be true, the rose came about 8" high and is now well over 10 feet. Gorgeous color & scent. Loved by birds and used as a screen no one would cut through. It lived through major neglect in CA drought, no feeding or any care for years & thrived on neglect. Cannot say enough about this amazing tough beautiful rose! (Posted on 4/8/2017)
FabulousReview by maidie

Zephyrine is a wild and crazy lady! I bought her thinking she would make a nice 10-15' pillar rose beside my porch columns. Instead she grew past the third story and is trying to take the roof off!! When she blooms in the spring the whole block is perfumed and people come to take pictures. The only disadvantage is that once the spring flush is over, it's over till next year (maybe a few random blossoms in September). I love her anyway (Posted on 12/12/2016)
one of the best for climbing, shade tolerance Review by Rainqueen
Rating
Fragrance and being thornless makes this a very friendly rose. It is vigorous, and came back even when Bambi had part of it for dinner one spring. A clear medium pink bud for repeat flowering and foliage that does well even in part shade. I don't spray, but I moved it to a place with better air circulation, and its foliage is doing better.

Love this rose!Review by Pamela
Rating
I've had my ZD for almost 10 years and even took it to my new house 3 years ago! It grows very quickly and I get a shower of beautiful flowers in the spring, but that's it! I remember flowers all summer long before I moved. I'm wondering if moving it from a partial shaded/protected area facing west to a very sunny south-facing area has something to do with the flowering cycle?
When it does bloom, however, it's a showstopper! (Posted on 10/7/2015)
Healthy Prolific BloomerReview by Clarice
Rating
Everything about this rose is good. I had this planted in a part shade location and it performed perfectly. The first flush is the strongest with tons of perfectly shaped flowers on virtually thornless stems. Makes a great cut flower. Very healthy, disease resistant. Glossy green leaves on this climber.

Flowers Spring and FallReview by Kathy

I bought five of these about 7 years ago. Planted them in partial sun and they took off! Moved them two years later to full sun. They rebounded and got to at least 12' long. This spring, after a really hard winter, I cut them back hard. Yet they're back and blooming as strong as ever! Truly thornless with a lovely scent. These are perfect for a trellis anywhere in a sunny garden. (Posted on 6/3/2014)
My very favoriteReview by Calypso
Rating
When I decided to "try" growing roses ten years ago I never guessed that it would be so easy or that I would be so successful. Of the dozen varieties I grow, Zephirine Drouhin is by far my favorite. Her raspberry pink blossoms are fragrant and cover the arbor between our drive and the deck. People stop twenty feet away and wonder where the wonderful fragrance is coming from. This is a carefree, reliable, thornless beauty that even provides a little late season bloom or two. Maybe the secret of success is the BIG hole I dug for them according to instructions!
