I have ordered two of these climbing roses to install on an arbor. I plant to place the arbor between the street and the front of my home (two large oak trees are in the front yard and the arbor will be somewhat below the branches). The roses will start getting filtered morning sun approximately 8:30am - 11:30am. Then, it will get more dappled sun 11:30am - 3:30, followed by some direct sun 3:30 to approximately 6:30. So that works out to 7 hours of filtered / dappled sun, followed by 3 of late afternoon more direct sun. Since the afternoon sun in Houston is extremely hot, my concern is how it will handle those last few hours. My thought is that it should bloom profusely on the side of the arbor facing the house (the house faces somewhat west), but wondered whether the other side would at least be presentable from the street side, i.e. if the plant would still have healthy leaves at least.

Any experience you could share?

Hi RozTX, Welcome!

I don't grow Rose (Rosa 'Zephirine Drouhin') but our database states full sun or full sun to partial shade so hopefully it will do really well in your planned location. It really is a gorgeous rose!
