Comments It's a vigorous, nicely branched climber with flowers pink and muddled. Some photos of the rose depict it with some white color in the petals. The canes are nearly thornless. BTW: Beales suggests growing this rose with two other Boursaults, both of which are roughly the same color and nearly thornless: Morletti and Mme. Sancy de Parabere. The latter has more formal flowers and is fragrant.
