Apothecary’s Rose

Rosa gallica ‘Officinalis’ 4x4'

Ancient semi-double deeply fragrant intense deep pink rose is just as medicinal as it is charming. Quite possibly the first rose cultivated in European gardens. Four rows of soft silky petals surround a crown of golden stamens.

History dates back to the 11th century when it was brought to Provins, France, by Crusaders returning from Syria. The strong fragrance retained in the dried petals led to an entire perfume industry in France, producing everything from essential oils to confections with “Rose of Provins.”

Many modern roses have been derived from this rose. Z4. (6-18" bare-root plants)
