Comments Paul Barden calls it a workhorse. Botannica's Roses says its bloom production is "staggering." ARS members rate it an eye-popping 9.2. By any measure Jeanne Lajoie is a remarkably productive and pleasing addition to any garden that admits roses. Its small pink flowers are borne plentifully and with good continuity on a vigorous and healthy plant. And for those who want to impress a fellow rose-grower, just remember that this is one rose that blooms on old and new wood, meaning one does not need to prune severely every year.
