Claire Rose

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Gold Badge The blossoms of Claire Rose are exquisitely cupped and packed full of tissue-paper thin fragrant petals. They are large compared to the similarly shaped blossoms of old roses. It's a tribute to the canes that they can hold them aloft.

But whereas other English roses in my garden have produced six, ten, or - in the case of Mary Rose - 50+ blossoms each this season, three Claire Rose plants have produced a total of one perfect flower.

I love that one rose much and am happy I have this cultivar in my garden. I am also happy I am not depending on Claire Rose for garden color.

It is healthy and has adequate vigor. ARS members rate it a solid 7.4.
