Roses In Alphabetical Order ‘Z’

‘Zephirine Drouhin’ Roses (Bourbon, Introduced – 1868)The semi-double cerise-pink flowers of ‘Zephirine Drouhin’ are 3 1/2 to 4 inches across and are loosely formed. Borne in profusion in spring, they continue to appear intermittently until fall, when the plant once again flowers heavily. Blooms are very sweetly scented. Young leaves are a coppery purple, maturing to dark green, and the canes are smooth.
‘Zephirine Drouhin’  rose is a vigorous grower with an upright, semi-climbing habit. This rose can be pruned as a shrub placed in a large border or displayed as a specimen, and it makes a fine formal hedge. Or, train it as a climber on a trellis, fence, or porch, where this rose may grow as high as 20 feet. The lack of prickles makes it a good choice for planting near walkways or play areas.
‘Zinger’ Roses (Miniature, Introduced – 1978)Actually a semi-double rose with 11 petals, ‘Zinger’ rose opens so flat that it appears single. Its bright red, slightly fragrant petals are set off by yellow stamens on 1 1/2-inch blooms. Plants grow 12- to 18- inches high, with medium to dark green, glossy leaves.
