Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Handsome and distinctive, this large, upright shrub bears flowers that are a mixture of pale rose, salmon and purple. Fully open flowers of Monsieur Tillier are compact and attractive, flat and very double with petals that are often imbricated. Its rich and unique fragrance is like a spicy herbal tea - very relaxing!"
