Does anyone here grow a Mary Washington Rose and info to share about it. I was given a "Mary Washington" rose by a very elderly lady master gardener and she said it was a Mary Washington. The data base says this has a bush habit of growing, but a google search shows what looks like a climbing rose in several pictures. Mine is a climber, but very limited. For as long as this rose has been around supposedly, there seems to be very little info on it. Here is what mine looks like today, it should be in full bloom in a few more days.

I don't see where the database says it "has a bush habit." It's a noisette, and most of them have a climbing habit.

Rose (Rosa 'Mary Washington')

Please add your photos to the entry. Smiling We don't have any images of that rose yet.

Oh, sorry, it said shrub. I think I took that to mean bush.
Thanks, Zuzu.
