Old Rose.

A Damask rose of the Portland group, created in France in 1860 by Robert & Moreau.

Up to 55 petals, shaded pink, with the intense perfume of a Damask rose.

A plant which takes up relatively little space, and is therefore well-suited to small gardens, with very large flowers that belie its size.
