Comments It produces five-petalled roses that are five inches across. And it makes many of them. Dickson's roses is happy to point out that Stirling Macoboy in his Ultimate Rose Book recommends a "Period Bed" planted with this rose. Surely any thriving estate with more than two acres of rose gardens would do well to follow his advice.
