Shrub (Austin), 1983

This rose has everything: beautiful, truly old-rose flowers, intense myrrh fragrance, and disease-free foliage. It's a heavy bloomer and drops it's petals cleanly. One of the best roses I've ever seen; I don't know why more people don't grow it.

Pink Gruss an Aachen

Floribunda, 1929

A small plant with big flowers. If you're restricted to container gardening but want roses larger than minis, this is the perfect choice. The pink sport is much prettier than the original, which is a dull cream color, and the colors hold up better in the sun. Often sold in catalogs as simply "Gruss an Aachen," so ask before buying.
