Gardeners' Notes:

This is a noisette and not a climber for me--definitely a bush form.

'Natchitoches Noisette' is a found rose that was collected from a cemetery at the old fort in Natchitoches, LA where it had been growing form more than 100 years with no care, fertilizer, or attention of any kind. The blooms are double, cupped, and light pink.

The myrrh fragrance is very strong when the buds first open, but it diminishes rapidly. The growth habit us upright and bushy (as it is for me), and the flowers repeat from March until December.

Natchitoches is an unbeatable climber for the hot, humid south. It blooms a soft, pastel pink blossom in profusion in May then steadily through the summer. The fragrance description is incorrect. The buds have a moderate myrrh scent when tight. It fades rapidly once the blooms open.
