Buff Beauty Rose

Hybrid Musk Roses

The Buff Beauty rose, is just that. A Musk Rose that is 'A real beauty'. It bears large clusters (up to 12) apricot/yellow, old-fashioned flowers that resemble powder buffs. They have a pleasing fragrance, and can stand up to bad weather well.

The flowers on the Buff Beauty rose gently fade to a lighter color. New stems are a reddish brown. The bush itself is quite beautiful, even without the flowers. It has a nice rounded habit, with glossy dark green foliage that is dense, and considered very disease resistant. They are lovely planted as shrub roses.

You can grow them as a compact shrub rose by pruning it low, or let it grow into a spreading shrub. In warmer climates, it can even be grown as a short climbing rose.

These Hybrid Musk roses, produce trusses of pale apricot flowers in Summer, and again in Fall. The main burst of flowers is in mid-summer, but the flowering continues all season.

The multi-petalled flower opens out, with mutteld centers, like a powder puff. It has a graceful habit, with branches arching beneath the weight of the clustered blooms. Flower color varies with the seasons, but they are always charming and distinctive.

This is a classic shrub rose that has been around for a long time, yet it is still popular today. Plant them in a border, or against a low wall for a spectacular effect.

The delicate powder puff flowers, make this a very charming, and attractive, shrub rose. That lovely tea rose fragrance is nice too!

It does okay when planted in partial shade.


Prune late winter. Remove dead, diseased, or damaged growth. Do not prune old wood. Trim remaining side shoots to retain the shape of the bush.
