A favourite in my garden. I have the climbing version of this rose, also know in North America as Mrs. P.S. Dupont. It was bred by Charles Mallerin of France in 1929 as a hybrid tea, and later bred as a climber by Hillock in U.S.A. in 1933.
Although this is not ideal rose growing country, there are some which do well in my garden. This one is on a very sheltered east-facing wall, crowded between vigorous climbing plants which often hide the rose canes.
Things grow madly here in this climate and cutting back is a weekly chore.
I love the rich buttery colour, the dark red stamens and the dainty petals. Also the way the center petals stay tightly closed while the outer petals are unfolding, as in the middle photo.
Thanks for dropping by! Do come again soon. Hasta la Vista!
