Developed by crossing a Hybrid Rugosa with a Hybrid Tea, Dr. Eckener’s leaves and flowers look more like a Hybrid Tea than a rugosa. The ruffly blooms are quite large with nuanced tones of buff, tinted primrose at the center, the overall effect being salmon pink. Though tall, it responds well to pegging or pruning down. Dr. Eckener is altogether a rare and delightful rose with great fragrance and rebloom.
Introduced in 1930.
