RE: thornless rose?

Ohmygosh! There are so many, thorns and I don't get along. I'm looking for a thornless climber for an arbor. Does anyone have one of those to trade?

Now, if you want pain, go for Mermaid.

Several other blood suckers come to mind as well.

RE: thornless rose?

Kim Rupert's climbing rose for a warm zone, and shrub for a cold zone is Annie Laurie McDowell, it's 100% thornless, even more so than Paul Neyron. It's the best smelling rose I know of, smell like lavender and lilacs, beat all my 15 Austins. It blooms like mad, drought, and disease-resistant.

'Mrs. Dudley Cross' is a beautiful ivory-yellow Tea rose that shows all the 'exquisite delicacy" of bloom shape, that its' class is famous for, ,for those of you who live in warm climates, which Old Garden Tea roses must have. My plant has not a single prickle. It is in full bloom today, on February 8th.
I greatly desire Kims' rose, 'Annie Laurie McDowell, a rose that I've heard from several folks that is evergreen and has smooth canes.
