Comments "This is the forest primeval, the murmering pines and the hemlocks." That's how the famous poem by the same name starts, with a sort of galloping cadence. That's appropriate on two counts; Evangeline is a galloping sort of a rose, easily reaching 15 to 18 feet, and it is highly productive of very simple white-eyed pink flowers with a sort of primeval charm. It is very generous with its flowers, covering its frame with them at the height of the summer season. The season extends for several weeks, but the rose does not repeat.
