Climbers for North Facing Walls

Climbers for North Facing Walls

Planting roses in shady positions is a great way of bringing colour and interest to forgotten areas of the garden. Although, in general, roses will not thrive in a position where there is too much shade, the varieties listed below will do surprisingly well on a north-facing wall with only four or five hours of good sun each day. The main consideration when planting roses on north-facing walls is to avoid areas where there are overhanging branches and dry places where there would be too much competition from the roots of trees and other shrubs. Most of David Austin’s repeat-flowering English Climbing Roses perform well in partial shade. The climbing and rambling roses listed below are all suitable for an open, north-facing wall or other shady positions. Again, they only require four or five hours of good sun each day.
