Baronne Prevost Rose

Hybrid Perpetual Rose Type

The Baronne Prevost rose, is one of the oldest Hybrid Perpetual roses still on the market today. It is easy to see why it was extremely popular for many years.

This early Hybrid Perpetual 'Baronne Prevost' has flowers that retain the shape of the old rose form.

The blooms begin as large globular buds that open to flat, full, quartered rose pink blooms, shading to a lighter pink/lilac color. These beautiful pink roses are quite large. The quartered blooms are wide, and very double. They are also quite fragrant, and make nice cut flowers.

This is a very free flowering rose, producing flowers in Summer with an occasional Fall repeat.

It is a classic Old garden rose, with a controlled upright form. It grows into a some what compact shrub with stiff stout canes, with attractive foliage and short red prickles (thorns).

As do all roses, it likes rich garden soil. This is a rose that can easily fit into most garden designs,as it blends in well with most roses.

Plant it in the back of the border, near a bench where you can enjoy not only the beautiful flowers, but the fragrance as well.

If you like the look of the Old garden varieties, give this classic a try! It is the oldest variety of its class still being sold today.
