Gardeners' Notes:

I've seen this rose around SF, CA for sometimes. Again at the SJ Heritage Rose Garden where I took the photos. I didn't know I've rooted some cuttings but they didn't bloom until 2 yrs later. Like most of my antique rose cuttings they don't immediately bloom the first yr. Its a healthy little plant with no obvious diseases. Nice scent with the most wonderful shades of pale pinks. The fragrance reminds me of baby powder and musty. It reblooms spring summer and fall. I've put it in a rather shady area with no ill effects. Not as robust as some of the hybrid teas but then again I don't need some big monster to tame. Its good as a low growing plant.

Small marble sized buds with a deep open "eye" in the center burst into fully open 3" + flat blossoms almost overnight. The fragrance is outstanding.
