Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
|Love is a reverse bicolor hybrid tea rose that photographs very nicely. In real life you have to be close enough to detect that the rose has no smell to get a good look at it: this blossom was not three inches across. And it was the only one on the miserable little plant. If one is to have such small blossoms anyway, why not grow miniatures? At least they have leaves.
ARS members give it 7.4.
Dante has, perhaps, reserved a special ring in hell for someone who would trivialize a notion so important and enduring as Love with a rose this utterly disposable.
