Shady Areas

Shady Areas

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 with only four or five hours of good sun each day. The main consideration when planting roses in shady positions 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 Roses perform well in partial shade, as well as other repeat-flowering shrub roses, such as the Hybrid Musks, Rugosas and Ground Covers. Many once flowering varieties are suitable for growing in partial shade, particularly the Gallicas, Damasks and Albas. The climbing and rambling roses listed below are all suitable for an open, north facing wall or other shady position. Again, they only require four or five hours of good sun each day.

    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.

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.
