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.

  1. Mortimer Sackler

    Mortimer Sackler

    English Climbing Rose
    A delicately beautiful, rather unusual climber, bearing pretty pointed buds which open to medium-sized, loosely double, light pink flowers. Produced in large open sprays over a very long season, the flowers are held on slender dark stems and gradually open to expose golden stamens. There is a light-medium Old Rose scent with hints of fruit. It is healthy and almost thornless with relatively small, dark green leaves. The right to name this rose was auctioned on behalf of The National Trust. DavidᅠAustin, 2002.

  2. Phyllis Bide

    Phyllis Bide

    Rambling Rose
    This is a rose of truly rambler-like character, which has the benefit of reliably repeat-flowering. It bears delightful sprays of small, pale apricot-pink flowers, flushed with pale yellow. They are made up of narrow, quill-like petals, creating a very pleasing effect, and have a lovely sweet fragrance. Bide, 1923.

  1. The Pilgrim

    The Pilgrim

    English Climbing Rose
    This variety has particularly beautiful blooms. The buds open to reveal many petalled cups, which gradually form large, flat rosettes. The colour is a very attractive shade of soft yellow, the petals paling prettily towards the edges. The flowers have a medium strength fragrance, which is a perfect balance of Tea and myrrh. It will quickly reach some height and still produce flowers and leaves lower down the plant. Named after the pilgrims in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. DavidᅠAustin, 1991.

  1. Veilchenblau

    Veilchenblau

    Rambling Rose
    Produces large, closely packed clusters of small, cupped flowers. They open purple-magenta with a white centre, occasionally streaked white too, each with an attractive boss of bright yellow stamens. As the blooms age, they fade to lilac-grey – appearing almost blue on occasions. There is a fresh, fruity scent with rich orange notes. The growth is rather stiff and almost thornless. Schmidt, 1869.
