Great Maiden's Blush

Foliferous & Fragrant
Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Great Maiden's Blush Before I planted Great Maiden's Blush I had to ask myself whether I could stand to have roses that bloomed just once in my garden. But these two three-year-old plants cover themselves in blossoms for three weeks solid. No hybrid tea rose I have owned has produced as many blossoms in its lifetime as one GMB in a single season. And the honey-flavored scent is divine.

The roses are extremely vigorous, completely resistant to fungal disease, beautifully branched and foliaged, and on a perfect scale with the landscape. There is no question in my mind as to how ARS members would choose to rate this rose 9.0.
