Big Thornless Rebloomers to replace a Ginormous Multiflora
I have a Multiflora (didn't know that's what it is until a couple days ago) in a corner of my yard by my veggie garden. I want to remove it and (hopefully) replant other roses there to fill the void and restore the privacy shield it gives us. (All these years before I got into roses I thought it was "pretty" and wild. HAH!)
It's the only place in the yard I can really let a rose grow with reckless abandon in all directions, but I still prefer it be thornless or mostly thornless (my kids crawl around there as a fort).
There are a few roses I've already decided I like the look of, and wondering how these, or others, might do in this spot. Full sun all day. East Bay, by Walnut Creek. Little or no water once established. Prefer little or no pruning or deadheading needed, too. I would love something to fill the fence up and spread around and go over, if possible.
And if possible I'd love a thornless rebloomer, which is why this list is so short. Am I missing any good choices?
