Marie Pavie Rose

The Marie Pavie Rose is one of the oldest of the Ployantha roses, and a good example of just how well these rose types can perform.

The flesh pink colored small buds open to neat, semi-double cupped flowers that fade to white with age. When open you can see the pretty yellow stamens.

This Polyantha rose is a good repeat bloomer, producing lots of flowers throughout the season.

Type  Polyantha

Hybridizer Alegatieve (France) 1888

Blooms  Light pink that ages to creamy white with yellow stamens 35-40 petals on 2" cupped flowers

Foliage  Medium dark green foliage is leathery, with few prickles (thorns)

Fragrance   The fragrance is delightful! Strong/Musky

Growth Habits  Vigorous grower, Upright, Bushy Grows 3-4' (sometimes smaller)

Hardy Zone  Zone 6

The clusters of 5-20 flowers are nicely spaced, and held high above the foliage, and very fragrant. You'll discover how fragrant on a humid evening, ........the scent can perfume the whole rose garden.

The foliage on the bush is medium size, bright green, and fairly disease resistant, except for an occasional bout with blackspot or mildew.

This rosebush is vigorous growing, compact, and thorn-less. It has a continuous flowering ability that produces flush after flush of flowers all season.

Ideas for Growing Marie Pavie Rose

This bushy growing rosebush is excellent for a low hedge, in borders, small beds, and makes a nice rose to add to a mixed border.

It doesn't have to be in an all-rose garden....blend it in with your perennials for a nice contrast!

It has recently made a come back on the market, and since its re-discovery, is becoming very popular for use in landscapes as well as garden plantings.

Note: I've listed the hardiness zone for Marie Pavie as zone 6, but one reference has it at zone 4-11. I should think zone 5 might be o.k, but don't know about 4?
