Virtually thornless, incredibly fragrant, shade tolerant, disease resistant, and long blooming--all without sacrificing absolute beauty! Bred in 1868 in France, this is one of the most popular roses of all time. An amazing abundance of 2 1/2 to 3" deep pink blooms that peak in spring and again in fall. The mildew resistant foliage begins as coppery-purple and then turns a rich, dark green. Does remarkably well in shade and is excellent for north facing walls and areas with little sunlight. Extremely tolerant of alkaline soil and pollution. Grows 8-12' tall and is an absolute must for any garden.
