That is a beauty, wow. It is a cabbage rose, see those thorns. Not sure might be a gallica, centifolia, moss rose, damask, portland. It is one of the old roses, old are considered as such if they were introduced prior to the mid 1800's I believe. Gosh does it smell pretty?

Hi Kathy,
Yes, she does have an old fashioned rose smell. This is an own root rose that I bought from Chamblee's. Their information said that Lovers Delite is also believed to be Fisherman's Friend. I have had her for 4 years and this is the first odd bloom she has made. I think it is lovely. I just wonder what to properly call it, and whether or not there will be more of them to come.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
