Nypel's Perfection

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose All that Jazz at Colonial Park Rose Garden Pink polyanthas that cover themselves in bloom are not so rare. But though they may be common, they may still be treasured. This is certainly the case with Nypel's Perfection. The flowers in its huge trusses start out a dark apple-blossom pink and fade to white. The silky surface adds to their attraction.

There was no hint of fungal disease in this massive planting at Berkeley Municipal Rose Gardens. And they did look vigorous.

Common though the effect may be, this happens to be a fairly obscure cultivar. We hope to see more of it.
