Kathleen Harrop Rose * Introduced in 1919

Kathleen Harrop  is a knockout in the spring.  The fence that I laced the canes through is a solid mass of flowers for about a month.  Then we get a moderate number of  blooms most of the rest of the year.   We were looking for a rose that would take low light and would not tear us apart going up and down the stairs.  This one is thornless.  We get a little rust and mildew in June with the fog.  The plant loses a few leaves and then bounces back.  Kathleen Harrop is also noted for being more tolerant of shade than most other roses.   Generally this is a strong growing rose. Kathleen Harrop is a sport of Zephirine Drouhin found by Dickson in Northern Ireland in 1919.
