Comments This is a unique and beautiful Old Garden Rose. The blooms have the bourbon shape of Souvenir de la Malmaison, but they do not have the pink pigment. Instead, there is just enough yellow to make them glow in bright sunlight or look subtly ivory or buff in shade. The plant is a bit lanky but is of moderately easy culture where it will not be too severely tested by blackspot or mildew.
