Comments Else Poulsen is rated as an "Earth Kind" rose, which means that it thrives in tough conditions without the use of artificial chemical fertilizers or antifungal sprays. It must also be reasonably tolerant of dry conditions. The plant is capable of completely covering itself with pink flowers. There is not much in particular to recommend it outside of its unconditional health and vitality, and its ability to produce plenty of pink through the season; but sometimes that is enough.
