After approximately seven years in my garden, with either one or no roses produced in a given year, Celine Forestier finally produced 12 - 18 blooms this spring, in spite of growing at its northern limit here in zone 7, 3/4-day's shade and no spraying.

These are divine flowers of transporting fragrance, many-petaled shadows and elegant form. Perhaps growing up through a Sciapytis verticillata has given it an edge in surviving our winters on our NW-facing hill.
