Introduced in 1925 by Wm. E.B. Archer & Daughter
Surely, this rose has been hand painted again and again onto china. Its pink blooms with deeper reverse are made memorable by the purple stamens. The simplicity and fragrance are what win us and this rose retains its popularity today. It’s parentage is ‘Ophelia’ and ‘Kitchener of Khartoumn’. It is leggy, very upright and light of cane. Looks lovely with lavender growing at its knees.
Plants in this crop, though ready for shipping, haven’t bloomed, so the identity of this rose is not yet verified.
