I have been advised on a Garden web forum that 'Awakening' a sport of 'New Dawn' will bloom in partial and dappled shade.

In that case, if planted under and in front of young, growing, three trunked 'Biloxi' Crape Myrtles that have clean trunks for the first six feet and that are planted just north of a privacy six foot privacy fence, which recieves a lot of East and west sun, do others agree that either 'Awakening', or 'New White Dawn' will thrive and bloom better
then the reported shade tolerant, small climber, thornless 'Kathleen Harrop' which is a healthier sport of 'Zepherine Drouhan' climbing Bourbon rose?

I believe you'll be more pleased with Hybrid Musk roses trained as climbers under your Crape Myrtles than New Dawn or any of its variants. They are more reliable repeat blooming plants with fewer problems. Unless you require more cold hardiness than they may offer, please take a look at them before committing to New Dawn. You may find a large selection if you search the data base here for rose type, Hybrid Musk.

Even tho' a rose is touted to be shade tolerant, what that really means is that it will survive in somewhat shadier conditions better than some other roses. BUT, the thing to remember is that roses are sun lovers, so altho' the rose will perform in shadier conditions, it will never truly thrive.

If you observe the plant you will see longer spaces between the internodes and the plant will look like it has less foliage which is required for good performance. The rose is reaching for the sun. If it does get enough sunlight, it will put out some blooms, but never as many as it would if it had the 6 or more hours of sunlight roses prefer.

However, some classes of roses can grow better in shadier conditions. You will notice that most of these roses have fewer petals than New Dawn and roses like her. They don't require as much heat nor light to open. The suggestion of hybrid musk roses above is excellent. However, if they are not cold tolerant enough for your garden, look for roses that are singles, semi-doubles or doubles. The will do much better than roses with a higher petal count.

Smiles,

I planted this rose last year to climb up a long pergola and compete with two well established Sombreuil. It has taken off like a shot and is flowering like mad this Spring. The flowers are a lovely, soft pink and fully double in the way of old roses. They make a perfect companions with the white blooms of Sombreuil. It is nice to have Awakening's flexible canes to deal with. Sombreuil's canes are both prickly and somewhat stiff. All in all, I am very happy with Awakening and can recommend it without reservation.

Awakening just kept on flowering through a drought summer for me (zone 9) and is still flowering now in early winter. But it needs careful placement because it's very prickly.
