Rose


Lady Magnon bought this climbing rose last Autumn. It was planted in amongst a bed of Day Lilies, and became rather swamped.

It has only recently emerged from all the foliage, and has decided to flower. It has a beautiful blood red colour, the flowers themselves are small, open, and have curled petals. It's a stunner.

Unfortunately I can't tell you its name, because we failed to keep the label; although I have a feeling it was called 'Zephyr'. I've looked on the net, but can't find it. 

My photo does no justice to the actual colour.


I'm hoping it'll climb all over the front of our auvent; so far things are looking good.

  2. It can be a subspecies of ZĂ©phirine Drouhin but I don't really know.

    1. I love red Roses, and would always buy them above anything else. However, Lady M did also buy a pinkish/pale cream Rose two years ago, called André LeNotre (after he who designed the gardens at Versailles), which is very beautiful, and has a wonderful scent.

  6. It really looks wonderful. Here I have roses in many colors but the bloom is so short because of the hot days.

  9. A rose climbing over your auvent sounds quite painful.

  10. Our roses seem much more muted in colour. That’s so vibrant

  11. Just thought Cro - e mail David Austin Roses, Albrighton, Wolverhampton - they will tell you what it is called. I am sure they will have an e mail address on their web site and this is a perfect photo to send.

  13. A beautiful rose, and if it's a climber, stand aside. Off it goes.

  15. I always keep the labels of anything I plant, only throwing them away when the plant dies. Your rose is beautiful and will be scrambling across your roof in two or three years time.

  16. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
