Comments Guy de Maupassant is a cupped, pink rose that might be mistaken for David Austin's Mary Rose except that its flowers are a little bit warmer shade of pink. Some reports on fragrance suggest it is less fragrant than most David Austin roses, others suggest it is strongly redolent of apples. Normally the plant is compact, coming in at less than three feet in height, but HMF suggests that it might sometimes reach 9 ft.
