I absolutely love this rose. It has 1/2" blooms tight against each other all the way down the stem. It may only bloom once a year but it last a while and is well worth having. Absolutely Amazing!

I received this rose as a baby and so far am delighted with it's growth. I love the little leaves. I hope it will bloom this year, but if not, I'll wait til next year.

I received this rose and Katherine Ziemet from a very nice lady in TX named Melva. I'm planning on buying more roses from her this fall.

Found in an 18th century plantation garden near Wilmington, NC in 1949. It is believed that it was brought there by Scottish and English immigrants, as it is not native.
