This beautiful little rose has all the good characteristics of a Scottish Rose, but flowers almost continually. The fully double flowers are a lovely shade of fresh blush pink. The petals are loosely arranged to form pretty little rosettes, each about 1.5 across. There is a medium-strong Old Rose fragrance. It has small leaves and thorny, bushy growth. David Austin, 2002.
Origin of Name
