Comments Although the Grootendorsts are pinked as well, the he frilly, serrated, pale pink petals and the small dimensions of the plant make this one of the more delicate among the rugosas. Both noisettes and rugosas are known for their good scent, and Fimbriata does not disappoint. Its smaller scale and its fine scent make this an excellent choice for a cottage garden.
