Old Blush

An important rose in the evolutionary cycle of breeding as it was one that
was chosen to blend with the European roses to attain roses that would
bloom for a longer season. This particular rose it is thought is the
rose that the old song -'tis the last rose of summer - was written for,
surprising to us, as my bush blooms the whole year round!

There is a climbing version, but mine is a bush.
Scent of sweet pea
