General Allard
"Phil's Hot Pink Perpetual Damask"

Hybrid Bourbon, 1835

An historically important rose, it is a hybrid of Bourbon and Gallica roses and was a parent rose of the earliest Hybrid Perpetuals. It grows and looks like a Portland, similar to Rose de Rescht and just as fragrant, but not as harsh a color. It stays small, is an excellent repeater and a very tough plant.

Hybrid Tea, 1936

Amazing what a difference a century can make! Shimmering petals of soft oranges, gold and magenta with deep rose veining, the colors change according to the weather. A parent of Sutter's Gold, from which Sutter's Gold got it's fragrance.
