Rosemary Rose

Photo of Rose Charles de Gaulle Just what color are those blossoms? The official ARS color is deep pink. Or perhaps it is strong Coral. It is a pure, half-saturated red at any rate. Frequently it will have more blue and show as cerise. But in any case the roses are uniquely shaped and are of a romping but generally garden-friendly color.

This rose does fall prey to mildew, so this once popular rose is today used judiciously. ARS members rate it 6.9.
