Rosa 'Albertine'

Rosa 'Albertine' is one of the most popular roses of all, a wichuraiana rambler bred in France in 1921. Its sweet perfume is memorable, as is the sudden lavish display in summer of coppery pink, loosely double flowers on arching, thorny, reddish stems. It makes an excellent cut flower.

Grow Rosa 'Albertine' in an open, sunny site in moist but well-drained soil. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost.
