Top Performing Roses for Part Shade (minimum 3-4 hours of direct sun) in the Southeast, include:
Veilchenblau (“veil of blue” in German), Rambler, Group 2.
Lyda Shrub Rose 3-4’ with a honey scent, actually looks prettier with some shade.
Cornelia is a nearly thornless, climbing rose that will bloom on and off through the summer. Can be trained as a 5’ x 5’ hedge.
Belinda makes a perfect woodland garden edging, with heavy flower production in spring, and a repeat performance in the fall after dead-heading and feeding.
Moonlight rose produces 5-6’ cascading branches, smothered with heavily-scented flower clusters in April-May. Another good choice for a woodland-garden edging.
