Positive hortensia On Jun 11, 2006, hortensia from Langley, BC, BC (Zone 8b) wrote:

Accepted to be a sport of Mme Isaac Pereire, this strong growing Bourbon rose is similar in most respects -- a large plant which can be trained to wall or pillar or allowed to grow as a large arching shrub.

The young foliage is a rich crimson purple and there are several bursts of bloom, the fall ones being the most sumptuous.

A wonderful fragrance, though to my nose a bit different than its parent.
