‘Cardinal de Richelieu’

‘Cardinal de Richelieu’ Rose

Rosa gallica 2-3' x 3-4' Laffay, France, 1840.

Unparalleled fragrant deep purple-burgundy double 3" blooms in midsummer. Smooth green foliage. Bushy and smooth stemmed. Densely petaled flowers hold their fragrance and can be dried whole for potpourri. One of our all-time favorites here at Fedco. Rugged and easy to grow. Blooms on old canes, so little pruning or maintenance required. Soil adaptable. Sun or partial shade. Z3/4. (9-18" bare-root plants)
