Comments As a tea rose, it grows well in hot, muggy climates. And for this reason it has earned the earthkind label for roses that grow well without spraying. It does have some susceptibility to mildew. The flowers are small, about 2 inches across. They are cupped and pleasantly redolent of fruit. There is a white sport of this rose known as White Duchesse de Brabant.
