    Default Climbing rose no thorns?

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a climbing rose with no thorns for my father for Father's Day.
    Anybody know of a good source (online) for these?

    TIA,
    notmilk

    Don't know of a source on line Not milk but Zepherin Drouhin is a beautiful thornless climbing rose. It's pink, highly scented and has the advantage that it will grow on a north facing wall. If anyones looking for a climbing rose for a south facing wall I highly recommend Morning Jewel. It covers itself in flowers all summer, is highly scented, cuts and stands well and needs practically no attention. It does have thorns though. I've had this one for years and it's never been fed or watered !

    Zepherin Drouhin is an excellent choice for a thornless climber - can get a bit boisterous if left unchecked and it likes it's conditions - have seen it halfway up a fully mature horse chestnut.
    As for suppliers online - check out David Austin or Harkness Roses.

    I managed to order one online - well actually I found the website then phoned up. It was Pete Beale Roses (wasn't he in eastenders?).

    You will be getting excellent stock if it is from Peter Beale's Roses! Just up the road from me and have bought plenty roses from him. Have always done well!
