Comments When Nathalie Nypels is in full bloom, it can be difficult to se anything of the plant except its flowers. According to Peter Beales the rose blooms continuously and has a strong scent. Furthermore, as a polyantha, its multiflora heritage probably makes it impervious to disease. In the rose world this is a very rare combination of traits: this is an exceptional rose. It is also sold as Nathalie Nypels. (And, perhaps, as Nypels Perfection.) The rose, however, will not tolerate drought or poor soil. Not for a week; not for a day.
