    Trying to keep this plant healthy. Have moved it twice from deep shade to lighter shade.

    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium: "This world-famous prototype of the Hybrid Tea class has full, high-centered buds that open to shapely and very double flowers whose petals are an elegant silvery pink accented by a darker pink reverse. The bush tends to be broad and vigorous, like that of an old Tea rose, making La France a good landscape subject. The fragrance is also classic."
