If your garden doesn’t quite get the recommended 5-6 hours of sun, then these listed climbing roses for shade or north walls could perform. We have selected varieties which are well known for their mass of blooms, as well as strong varieties that have good to excellent disease resistance. Shade isn’t ideal for all roses but can bring out the colour in paler varieties, which otherwise would be lost in full sun. The subtle tones of Mme. Alfred Carriere and purples of Veilchenblau really come to their own when grown in dappled light.
