|| Patricularly strong myrrh fragrance.
One of our most beautiful Shrub Roses. Its magnificent clear pink blooms are
of true old fashioned type and exceptionally large, with a luminous delicacy
that is hard to compare with any other rose. It forms a lax-growing shrub of some 6 to
7 feet tall and as much across. Although often used as a shrub, it
makes one of the most glorious of all climbers; as anyone who has seen it at
Mottisfont Abbey, will agree. It has a strong myrrh fragrance; in fact, it
was this rose that introduced the myrrh fragrance to the breeding of the
English Roses. 12-15 ft. or more.
It is one of the original parents of all our English Roses.
