The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
The flowers on `Bon Silene' look a lot like `Old Blush'. It has dark pink, loosely double flowers that are present throughout most of the year in this climate. This is one of the best classes of roses for this zone; they are in bloom all the time, and require very little maintenance.
Bred in France by Eugene Hardy in 1835.
