My favorite rose, which needs a different location or climate to do well in our garden. This is the bush form, and it has always been small and scraggly. The bush notwithstanding, this rose is one I would hate to do without. I love the fragrance, which, to my nose, is quite different from what would be called the typical rose fragrance.
