Darlow's Enigma (6 votes, zone 4b hardy & shade tolerant & thorny)
Secret Garden Musk Climber (3 votes & thorny & clove & dianthus scent & hardy & continuous blooming)

Drouhin (shade & thornless & wafting scent), a second Perle d'Or (thornless, wafting scent). Second La Reine. LULLABY for wafting carnation scent. Cornelia for shade & cold tolerance, and Gruss an Coberg for outstanding scent.

Now is August 2, 2017 .. I truly hate Japanese Beetles. Still have bite-marks on my fingers from pinching them. The past week I set 2 Japanese Beetle traps FAR FROM MY ROSES, collected hudreds per day. At first I stomped on them with my feet, killed all. But later I put them into plastic bag, but I didn't jump on them well with my feet. Some were still alive .. ate through 2 layers of plastic bag, and crawled all over my garbage, flew out of my garage. From now on I jump on them really well and make sure they are all dead, before putting inside my garbage. Hundreds of dead JB also stank up my garbage can, I should had buried them in my garden !!
