Rosa gallica 5x5' Parentage unknown. Likely originated in Germany and named in France in the 17th century.
Classic old garden rose with large deep pink strongly aromatic flowers. Very double blossoms open flat like saucers with petals divided into distinct “quarters.” The face of the rose looks as though it was sheared flat. It is exquisite, and easily one of the most jaw-dropping in all of our rose trials. A must-have for gallica lovers. Petals hold on in bouquets.
Robust, hardy and easy to grow. Roundish symmetrical form. Dark glossy green foliage is moderately resistant to black spot and other foliar diseases when given sufficient air flow. Z4. (9-18" bare-root plants)
