Comments Ethel is a wichurana rambler with Dorothy Perkins as a parent. The flowers (depicted by several photographers at HMF) display a delightful globular form absent that same parent. They may open pale pink but usually show white. It would appear that the plant produces these in just about the same profusion as its popular parent. And there is a good fragrance.

BTW: As Josef Distl points out in his photographs of two roses in different locations with this name: the one at Sangerhausen is distinctly inferior to the one at Roseraie de l'Hay and one obtained from Andre Eve.
