description for "Modern Roses: rosa 'mary rose'"

One of the most widely grown English Roses and it is not difficult to see why. It forms a good bushy shrub, that is particularly winter-hardy and blooms with unusual regularity throughout the summer. The flowers are of attractive, loose-petalled formation and of strong rose pink coloring. A first class garden shrub that mixes well with other plants. The delicious fragrance is of Old Rose character, with a hint of honey and almond blossom. It was named after Henry VIII’s flagship when it was recovered from the Solent after more than four hundred years. 4 ft. x 4 ft.

History:

Austin: 1983
