Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
" soul-satisfying rose, ‘Marchioness of Londonderry’ opens from high-centered buds to huge, cabbage-like flowers of palest pink. The canes are longer than is typical even for this class. Hence it is perfect for a fence or trellis. Not a frequent bloomer, but well worth waiting for."
