Comments This obscure rambler produces lots of clusters of pastel flowers kissed with buff or pink. They are packed with petals and redolent of apple. There is a nice collection of tea-noisettes in this color range; and if one lives in zone 8 or 9 it is difficult to make a compelling case for Breeze Hill because there's probably a tea noisette or two that's even better. But there are a lot of places with colder winters where this pale gold color will be very welcome, along with the long canes and strong fragrance of Breeze Hill. Beales recommends planting this rose on the north wall of a building because it quickly grows tall enough that it can get light, or else because it thrives there even with indirect light.
