Thornless Roses

Thornless roses really are a gardeners dream and are the perfect choice for high traffic areas or children’s gardens. We have listed the best thornless and nearly thornless roses below and some popular varieties include: “A Shropshire Lad”, “The Albrighton Rambler” as well as the aptly named “Thornless Rose”.

A nearly thornless rose will generally only have thorns on its old and thicker stems with new growth generally being thorn free. As well as being virtually thorn free the roses below have been selected for offering a wonderful perfume and being fantastic growers. For instance the beautiful old climber “Madame Alfred Carriere” is unusual in that it will grow well on a north wall and reach heights of 20ft or more.

(Climbing Rose)

There are only a very few completely thorn free roses available and perhaps one of the best examples is the magnificent “Zepherine Drouhin” which was first cultivated in 1868. Featuring cerise-pink blooms on a white base it is a fabulous example of a climbing rose that will also make a fantastic scented hedge.

Another almost thorn free rose worth mentioning is the vigorous rambling “Veilchenblau” which has very pretty violet streaked flowers with bright yellow and prominent stamens. Highly scented, it is a lovely sight when in full bloom and flowers a little earlier than most ramblers.

A lot of the thornless roses are also remarkably easy to maintain which makes them the perfect choice for gardeners at any level. If you are looking for a very pretty rose bush for your garden, then the superb “Tranquility” really lives up to its name. With beautifully rounded shaped flowers making up a perfect rosette of pure white when fully open.
