Old Rose.

This old rose, very closely related to the Rosa gallica , was already known to us by 1800.

It has corollas with 5-7 petals, highly perfumed, deep pink and paler on the underside.

It grows vigorously, even in poor soils, and can reach 3 m in height. It is therefore suitable for creating isolated shrubs, hedges, and even to make pillars like a climber.
