Comments The plant is tall and spindly and it does poorly in lean soils, but when given ideal conditions it produces huge, fragrant blossoms. There is a special kind of feminine charm both the the shape and the fragrance of the blossoms. This is definitely not a rose for the show bench. Nor is it the perfect little shrub rose. But for those who fall in love with its unique charms, there are no good substitutes.
