The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
Alister Stella Gray
The cluster blooms from this rose are not big, but they are very double, opening to light cream or light yellow. Our plants do not bloom as much as the books say, but they do put on a spectacular spring display. The canes are long and flexible, so they are easily trained around a pillar. In this climate, the canes can get 20' long.
Bred in England by Alexander Hill Gray in 1894.
