Darlow's Enigma

fancygardenOctober 16, 2007

Does anyone think that a rose named Darlow's Enigma would grow in the southern California foothills?

Our nights get down to 35 degrees in winter and the days are mostly in the 80's and 90's in the summer with lots of sun.

I need some white climbers to place along a back wall that is 9' tall and 150' long.

This rose is wonderfully frangrant and prolific.

My other roses do well, but are all grafted varieties.

I live in Zone 9 in New Mexico. I have a lot of roses, a few are climbers. It snows here from time to time. The roses survive. I find that they need some shade protection from the hot sun. White roses, in particular, tend to need shade. If your wall offers partial shade for the roses, they ought to work well.

A friend lives in Paso Robles, California. She planted a hedge of white Simplicity roses last year. She raves about those roses! She said they are very sturdy and bloom constantly. She hasn't mentioned fragrance, so I don't know about that.
