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. Claire Austin

    Claire Austin

    English Climbing Rose
    This vigorous, upright rose makes a very good climber in both beauty and performance. It bears pleasingly cupped, pale lemon buds which gradually open to large, creamy white flowers, the outer petals perfectly arranged in concentric circles. They have a strong myrrh fragrance with dashes of meadowsweet, vanilla and heliotrope. The growth is strong and particularly healthy, and it is clothed in attractive matt green foliage. Named for the daughter of David Austin Senior. DavidᅠAustin, 2007.

  2. Adélaïde d'Orléans

    Adélaïde d'Orléans

    Rambling Rose
    A very beautiful and elegant rambler, with small pink buds opening to semi-double flowers, which quickly fade from cream to white. They are held in small, dainty sprays, hanging gracefully from the branch rather like the blooms of a Japanese cherry. The growth is very lax and not too vigorous, making it an easy variety to train. It also has the added benefit of being almost evergreen. Jacques, 1826.

    Félicité et Perpétue

    Rambling Rose
    Small, closely packed pompon flowers of creamy white, flushed pink at first, are held in large, slightly hanging clusters and have a delicate primrose fragrance. They are produced quite late in the season, around mid-July. Almost evergreen; it forms a dense mass of small, dark, neat foliage. Jacques, 1827.
