Lady Hillingdon

Remontant & Fragrant
Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Penelope

Lady Hillingdon is one of a dozen roses that always looks delightful in a photograph. Odd as it may sound, perhaps 90 percent or 95 percent of all roses have substantive beauty lapses during which the flowers are unattractive or downright ugly. Not so with this elegant lady. Don't expect a flurry of flowers, but do expect pretty ones with some fragrance.

As a tea rose, this rose is most bothered by cold. Keep her warm and well fed and you will be delighted at the results. ARS members bestow an 8.3.

The climbing variety is photographed here.
