Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Perle des Jardins, a Tea rose, was one parent of Prosperity, which may account for the sweetness of the fragrance. The double flowers are medium in size and ivory with pale pink buds. The clusters are large enough to weight the canes and arch them gracefully. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 8 to 10 feet."
