'Duchesse de Brabant'
A big beautiful romantic antique rose without all the fuss! Heavenly 4” shell to rosy pink flowers in the classic old-world cupped cabbage shape bloom continuously from Spring thru Fall! Her highly fragrant classic tea scent is simply divine and although she can grow to 5’x6’, she can also be pruned to suit almost any garden. She also boasts superior pest and disease tolerance, low water needs, and an ability to thrive in most soil conditions! She can even handle clay soil, though she looks prettiest in well-drained conditions. She also attracts butterflies and songbirds and can take serious heat! The Duchesse asks only one thing...Don’t crowd her! Like most roses, the Duchesse needs plenty of air circulation to maintain her phenomenal beauty.
Note: All of our roses are grown on their own root stock – never grafted! This means they tend to be healthier, more drought tolerant, and all around happier plants.
