Hybrid Musk Roses

Roses that are Classified as Hybrid Musk

Trier is an almost forgotten climber that is closely related to multifloras and somewhat more distantly related to the fragrant musk rose. Yet it has a capacity to imbue a large enough portion of its offspring with this delicious fragrance that Bishop Pemberton would use it often in the development of his roses and to name them for the more distant fragrant relative. The resulting roses tended to be well branched and foliferous in the multiflora tradition, but fragrant in the musk tradition. It is apparent that Pemberton was interested in plants with rose blossms larger than those of the multiflora rambler, and in most cases he succeded. The resulting group of roses is shrubby, well brancehed, foliferous, remontant, moderately tolerant of shade, and cold hardy. Most members of the class have good fragrance.

There is some variation in the class. Vanity tends to build a large, very open plant with dark rose or cerise single roses that dance like butterflies suspended in mid air. Ballerina, on the other hand produces single roses that are much smaller, closely packed together on a dense plant. Francesca's apricot flowers are almost hybrid tea or hybrid perpetual in size, but the plant is among the least vigorous of the bunch. Danae may produce the most hybrid-tea like blossoms of the bunch and might be perfectly suited to a number of very formal uses. Felicia may have the best overall balance of habit, good health, and so on; but her strengths are subtle and it can take some years of growing roses to quite appreciate them.
