Souvenir de la Malmaison

 


Souvenir de la Malmaison is a cherished old rose that I have growing on the picket fence that boarders the flagstone pathway on the West side of my home. It had been disease free for years that only produced the most fragrant roses. This bourbon rose is approximately 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide along the fence.  This space is in morning shade but hot afternoon sunshine which is why I believe this rose shrub thrives. This rose does like to be pruned which promotes new growth. On one side of this rose is planted Excellenz Von Sheubert and I plan to plant the Ancient Mariner on the other side. This rose makes an excellent cut flower and has a long vase life. Garden Zone 5-10
