Rosa4-5' x same. Unknown origin and parentage, likely R. alba x Damask hybrid, 1826.
Also called Konigin von Danemark. One of the oldest and most beautiful of the antique shrub roses. Highly fragrant medium-pink very double quartered blossoms appear to be overflowing with petals. Cupped 2–3" blossoms are similar to some of the gallicas we offer and darker pink than most albas. Coarse grey foliage.
While most albas aren’t too thorny, propagator Bob Osborne recommends putting on the gloves for this one. Smaller than most shrub roses. Z3. (9-18" bare-root plants)
