First rose of the season. Notice her petal structure. She has a number of layers of petals, although not what we are used to seeing in the modern rose. She opens flat. She is sweetly scented with a delicate and genuine rose fragrance. She is a true English rose, Victorian in fact. Blooming once a season, by the end of June she will be finished and deadheaded. Her sister the red Victorian is about to bloom She has fewer layers of petals and again will open flat as is the nature of the old English rose. I will post a picture of her soon.
