Reve d’Or is an 1869 Bourbon Rose that does well in Texas.
This climber is virtually thornless. Lyon breeder, Claude Ducher began breeding roses in 1835. Ducher created many roses, including ‘Reve d’Or’ 1869, a noisette; ‘Bouquet d’Or’ 1872; and ‘Marie van Houette’ 1871, a Tea rose.
This is a climber that reaches 18 feet. Because the canes are thin and flexible when young, they are easy to handle and can nicely be used to cover structures such as arches and pergolas. It was named “Earth-Kind® Rose of the Year” for 2010 by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service.
