Our Favorite Rose Variety Without Thorns
Make Rose Garden Maintenance Hassle-Free With Thornless Roses
“Every rose has its thorn” is what the old adage says that we console ourselves to when jabbed by those prickly thorns. How curses come out of our mouth with the sting and the sight of the rose-red blood.
Well, don’t despair, there are thornless roses you can plant everywhere (instead of in the farthest area in your garden) because they’re safe to touch. Time to forget about the thorns and think of rose romantic quotes instead.
Thorns or prickles, whatever you call it, are such a hassle when you’re pruning or when you have to buy a new set of garden gloves just for that purpose. Worse when your kids or pets accidentally run into your rose bed or hedges.
Although roses are not completely without thorns or prickles and a totally thornless variety is a rarity, we have varieties of roses that are almost without thorns, you won’t notice until up close.
Check out this list of thornless roses and know which variety is for you:
1. Irene Marie Miniature Roses
2. Cinderella Miniature Roses
Cinderella Roses may be small but it’s not terrible because they have no thorns in them. In fact, they are the pretty and cute kind that’s continually blooming and is slightly fragrant.
3. Amadis Thornless Rambler Rose
This one’s great for training in arbors and pergolas being a rambler type of rose, another variety without thorns. Though thornless, the downside of this variety is that they’re not fragrant and they don’t bloom for long.
4. Veilchenblau Rambler Rose
Being almost blue, these rambler roses are sometimes called “blue rambler” or “violet blue” which is much easier to say. They are not completely without thorns, almost thornless so to say.
5. Yellow Lady Banks Climber Rose
Working on a huge mass of climber roses will be more difficult with thorns. Thank heavens, this fabulous variety lady banks is thornless and blooms heavily in spring.

8. Oceana Hybrid Tea Rose
The Oceana Rose‘s pretty color and form make it a choice cut for flower arrangement and bouquets. Having no thorns makes it easy to handle and is pleasantly fragrant.
