Partial Sun Climbers?

Posted by cambel z6-7a DC (My Page) on

I have a fence that only gets about 4 hours of direct sun a day.

I would like to put a climber on it and was hoping some of you could recommend some climbers for zone 7 that can also tolerate only 3-5 hours of sun a day.
Thank you!

I don't remember whether you spray, but HMsk 'Belinda' has very good blackspot resistance and good repeat for a climber/big shrub.

New Dawn, but she's a monster, so beware.

Pink Perpetue. Love her so much! No fragrance that I've noticed, though.

Climbing Clotilde, but she's another monster and can ball in many climates. Wonderful fragrance.

Georgetown Noisette. Nice rose with a really great fragrance. Very tall, but easy to keep in check compared to the monsters. Smallish blooms, though.

Natchitoches Noisette, but I don't know how long it takes her to reach a good tall height (yet). She doesn't need much sun at all and is also nicely fragrant.

I can't remember whether noisettes are hardy in your zone. If they sound good, make sure to check around!

My Dublin Bay did very well in partial shade.
