Comments Victor Borge was a unique and cerebral comedian with a distinctive European flair. So it is appropriate that this unique rose be named in his honor: it is a rare sort of bicolor with copper on the face of the petals and yellow on the reverse. Bred by Paulson, there is a suggestion that the rose might be reasonably tolerant of cool, damp weather. And this seems to be borne out by its strong ARS rating. It is no longer distributed in the US.
