I'd appreciate a suggestion for a climbing rose to place on a trellis by a porch at the 1924 house main entrance. In Seattle, shaded in the afternoon. Ideally showy, reblooming and fragrant. Would Vincheanblau be suited? Many thanks

I saw Veilchenblau at a "demonstration" gardens that a plant nursery had. It bloomed very well in quite shady conditions when I visited. But, it blooms once so it is not a repeat/reblooming flowering rose. Would that remove it from your list?

How many hours of sun will a rose get in that location?

What Luis said . . .

Also, do you have a color preference? And how much space will the rose be able to occupy, without attacking visitors?

Is there a colour family you prefer? Is thornless preferable?

No preference for color or type. The rose will have enough spece. Hours of sun 5-6
thanks

I live in Seattle area too. If once blooming is not a problem, Veilchenblau does very well in Seattle, vigorous, healthy, shade tolerant, and its blooms are amazing. I got one band last year, and now it is 4'x3' with strong basal shoots. I also love New Dawn very much, but after the first flush, it tends to get some rust here. I don't spray. I just remove the infected leaves while pruning in summer. Another climber I grow is Madame Alfred Carrière. She is fragrant and remontant, never balling in the rain, but she's indeed susceptible to mildew. She is vigorous as well and took only one year to grow from a band to a 5' tall bush. These three are fast growers and need lots of space.

I have another 4 climbers, Quicksilver, Jeanne Lajoie, Renae and Ash Wednesday. Quicksilver is a healthy beauty here and my only complaint is that she is a bit stingy here. Spring flush is wonderful and long-lasting, but I hardly get the second round. Jeanne Lajoie lost all her leaves in my garden. I can only guess she doesn't like my microclimate even though she gets full sun. Renae seems to be loved by everyone, but she doesn't love me. She's covered with BS here. Ash Wednesday has my favorite color. but she is prone to mildew too. I may give the latter 3 another year to decide if they can stay.

This is my experience of growing climbers in Seattle. Be noticed that every garden has different conditions that may change the performance of roses. Since we're in the same area, I would like to know how's your rose going later. Smiling

I would just recommend getting something fragrant. It would be so nice getting hit by its scent every time you enter or leave. Or for those long goodbyes! I have a gardenia and an unknown fragrant rose by my driveway. Makes me less impatient while I'm waiting for the kids to get out the minivan! I don't have any recommendations unfortunately. I'm waitlisted for Nahema which is supposed to be very fragrant.

I also have Aunt Margy's Rose coming in the spring

As well as Reine des Violettes. Both fragrant. R d V is also thornless, which may not be essential for you but is a nice bonus. Training my thornless Souvenir De Docteur Jamain is definitely easier than handling Salita.

If you like the purple of Veilchenblau consider its repeating possible child Purple Skyliner.

I am extremely partial to Mdme. Alfred Carriere; such fragrance.
I find myself most amusing.

Vapor, I'm attracted by Purple Skyliner. Do you know where can I get it? HMF shows that Long Ago has it, but unfortunately they don't ship to WA.

thank you all`

I wonder if I could combine Purple skyliner (if it can be found in the US) and Renae (were to buy?) on a trellis .

Aerith I have many Jeanne Lajoie all doing good and I have a red climber that makes beautifoul bouquets tough not reblooming. I posted a request to iD because I don't remember the name, possibly Hot cocoa.

Hot Cocoa is a floribunda and the blooms were not my cup of tea. It is supposed some cinnamon like scent but I could not detect much. It is thorny.

Compassion is one of my favorite climbers. Very fragrant and reblooms. Mine is growing on the east side of my house into the jacaranda tree and up the adjacent arbor. Doesn't get monster huge, so pretty easy to deadhead. Very trainable.

I think rvr carries purple Skyliner and possibly Burlington. But you would have to check with her. If those places do not pan out you can remind me in a year and I'd be happy to take. for you. Purple Skyliner sounds dreamy next to Renee. Too bad that Rose is not Hardy in zone 6 I've heard.

vasvale .. in Oregon I have had great luck with Constance Spry. A David Austin beautiful double pink climbing rose and a lovely fragrance . Vigorous growth will cover a 12' high x 4' area in 2-3 Seasons. Takes the wet cold climate and no black spot or other diseases. Keep in full sun at least 7 hours in summers. Cut back some stems after two years for new Ground stems for wider coverage.
