Grand'mere Jenny

Photo of Rose Granmere Jenny It's one of a large number of roses whose lineage traces through Peace. The flower combines orange and coral tones with a slightly dishevelled or informal shape. It's very pretty, but not glamorous.

It won a number of prestigous awards in its day, but it would probably only be grown for special sentimental reasons today.
