Portland Roses

Roses that are Classified as Portlands

 

AbeDarbyTrim Phot

Portlands appear to be hybrids of certain damask roses and china roses. They tend to be well branched, fragrant, remontant, and productive of flowers with old rose form. When grown in very fertile soil under ideal conditions, several of the roses on this list can be quite pleasing. On poor soil, even the highest rated simply do no not grow. Each time I review the strengths of the roses in this class I imagine I must add a few to my collection, then I recall how, given two years of modest care in poor soil three different cultivars from this class never reached six inches in height in my own garden. Then, mercifully, they died.
