Souvenir de la Malmaison
Her synonym says it all-one of the most beautiful of all roses. Her fragrance is refined-like an expensive perfume. This rose comes in two forms-the bush and a climber. The climber is a sport of the bush form and was introduced by Charles Bennett in 1893. I have grown both forms. In Perth the bush form bloomed with equal repeat to any Hybrid Tea. I grow the climber here in Melbourne and repeat is good. A very favourite rose.
