And for dry shade and poor soil, healthy and reblooming varieties? 6+ ft high. Thanks.

Darlow's Enigma, Victorian Memory. My 2 Darlow's are very young (< 1 year) , but grew from 1 qt stem to about 2.5', bloomed. Victorian Memory is also less than 1 year old planted from a band, so it did not do much other than grow.
Any Rugosa should fit the bill as well. The previous owner planted about 16 pink Rugosas around, and they have survived drought, neglect, and cold. A little fish emulsion and iron and they just take off. Most of the bushes are shaded by trees for much of the day.

It would be easier to suggest roses for your question of you'd please give more of an idea where you are. "Shade" in Southern California is quite different from "shade" in Buffalo, New York and could very well make suggestions made for one, inappropriate for the other. The reduced heat and sunlight in shade can result in greater mildew possibilities as can water stressed conditions, so a higher resistance to mildew should probably be one of your criteria for selection.

I've been trying to find a particular rose, but everyone seems to be "sold out". It's a climbing Bourbon Rose named "Zephirine Drouhin". It's an old rose (1868) and apparently doesn't need full sun to bloom. Does anyone know where I can purchase one or two plants?

Try Mileagers Garden Center in Racine Wisconsin. They recently had 2 in stock, however, they may be able to provide you with a contact for purchase located in your area.

I bought five Zephrine Drouhins a couple of years ago.I ordered mine through a nursery in the EARLY spring,but I also found a small outlet online.I can't remember the name.A mother and son runs it out of Texas and the rose was only $14.95.You can find the address under 'old roses'.The Zephrine Drouhin is an ole rose from 1868.Its fragrance reminds me of raspberries.I love them! This year,mine are doing wonderfully well! Good luck!

I found one at Home Depot......beware.....the roots had been cut off to make it fit in the pot. Yes,it died! Check it out throughly before buying if possible,shake it out of the pot and if "no" roots are visible and the dirt falls away.......walk away!

What roses are good choices for shade?
Reply #1 of 1 posted 12 MAR 03 by Alex Sutton
[From Growing Old-Fashioned Roses, by Trevor Nottle, p. 12:] Carolinae... The roses from Carolina... the only ones which enjoy growing in wet ground and in mild shade... distinct from other roses in that the autumn leaves can be very richly coloured in shades of scarlet, orange and gold.

These roses are said to be shade-tolerant:

'Alba Semi-Plena'
'Belle Poitevine'
'Blanc Double de Coubert'
'Dart's Dash'
'Golden Wings'
'Harison's Yellow'
'Lavender Dream'
'Marjorie Fair'
'Pierette Pavement'
'Queen of Bourbons'
