Comments Elle is more than just a pretty rose named after a prominent leggy model. The perfectly formed high centered blossoms are very fragrant, and the roses are borne with good continuity through the season on a plant that - ironically - is not too leggy in the garden. By hybrid tea rose standards the frame is compact and well branched, meaning that it can fit well into a border scheme. It grows well and resists disease.
