Comments Here you can get the beautiful centifolia form, the excellent centifolia scent, and some repeat blooming without giving up too much in the way of vigor or disease resistance. You mostly give up knowing whether this is a Bourbon, a Centifolia, a Hybrid Perpetual, or what. There are worse trade-offs.
