Another shade tolerant climber is Zepherine Drouhin. Bright fuschia pink semi double flowers, sweet fragrance, flexible almost thornless canes, and very winter hardy.

I live in Atlanta and was thinking about planting a Buff Beauty in a small patch of ground (~4.5' x 2.5') in front of a south facing chimney (full sun). I need something that would require no more maintenance than any another bush (perhaps a once a year pruning). Actually, this would be at my mom's house and I know that's about all the attention it will get. Disease resistance, hardy-no special winter care, fragrant, not too big, and of course color are all important factors in the decision. If this is a good choice, I'm still wondering whether it should to be shrub shaped on its own (I assume no staking) or to try to train it to a trellis (hopefully, not a constant battle). I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

Hi Steve,
You might want to post your question on the GardenWeb Roses forum ( then click on Forums, then Roses). I've learned a lot on that site (that's how I heard of this wonderful site).
Good luck,
