Oh, how roses can stir our souls.
That is a really beautiful rose.
The fragrance is astonishing! I lost it and many dozens of roses to 6 years of drought, but am rebuilding my collection by growing roses in buried 5-7 gallon Water Wise Container Gardens I make from discarded plastic buckets. I will be ordering a new specimen of Louis XIV and E. Veyrat Hermanos from Roses Unlimited.
