Queen Victoria is highly honored with this rose. It is one of a tiny handful of remontant bourbon roses that will be cherished by gardeners as long as roses are grown.

The flowers are quite shy of being two inches across, but they are packed with petals and are very fragrant. The plant is very nicely branched and foliaged. It produces two good flushes of bloom per year.

As with most bourbons there is some black spot, but the rose is vigorous and tough and will usually keep growing strongly after fungal attacks

ARS members rate it 8.2.
