A new "Old Garden Rose" for our garden. A Gallica that is reported to be one of the best. The blooms are filled with petals that start out deep red and age to shades of violet. The blooms are 3 inches with around 100 petals have button eye and a strong fragrance. The bush is compact and we understand can send out some runners, so would be great rose for naturalizing. Reports of the height all the way from to 2 feet to 7 feet. Most Gallica's are taller bushes, I would assume this also, we will know soon enough.
