Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Alain Blanchard Presumed to be Alain Blanchard because of its distinctive spots. Graham Thomas mentions a handful of other old roses with spots and calls this one the best. The color metamorphosis he describes matches this one. He calls the foliage unattractive. I would definitely agree if it were just a tinge more yellow, but in this particular case I like its color, texture, and density.
