Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This exquisitely fragrant rose can easily fill a garden with its perfume. It is best suited as a loosely cascading or rounded shrub to five feet. Companion plantings of blue and white perennials accent this rose's lilac pink flowers well. It has an extended spring bloom. One of the best virtues of this rose, unlike many of the other cold-loving Damasks, is its ability to thrive in the warmer Southern gardens. It is believed to have gotten its name from the Persian city of Rescht."
