As a comment about Rose (Rosa 'Maman Cochet'), Calif_Sue wrote:

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Maman Cochet is the epitome of the classic long-budded Tea. Her fine shape, strong stems, and true orris odor all recommend her for southern and western gardens. She bears flowers of a soft, creamy pink on a steady basis. Very few thorns, and foliage of a dark green, leathery texture make a handsome shrub."

What does that mean? I'm overwintering this rose and she's doing well, just a baby. Can't wait to let her stretch her roots this spring.

Thanks for looking it up! Can't wait to use that word when she blooms: "Don't you think she has a wonderful orris fragrance? I always thought so." Lol.
