Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Bearing large, fully double flowers with wonderfully swirled centers, 'Le Vesuve' blooms often and freely in shades of lilac pink. A compact bush with heavier foliage than many Chinas, it is vigorous and attractive anywhere in the garden or landscape. This rose can easily be maintained at a smaller size."
