Comments It bears large rose-colored blossoms that are deeply cupped and packed with petals in an old-rose form. Think of cutting a cabbage in half. The blossoms are among the largest to be found among old garden roses. The plant needs some attention to get established, and there can be some difficulty with blackspot.

BTW: According to Michael Shoup this is probably the "cabbage rose" growing in your grandmother's or great grandmother's garden. It rose to extreme heights of popularity after its introduction and has never completely faded. In fact, the color of the flower was so well known that for some time people referred to the rosy shade as "Neyron Pink."
