The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
This is a recent Hybrid Musk introduction by Kordes, but it still has all the same good qualities of the earlier Hybrid Musk roses. The blooms are more of a light pink tinged with lilac and are semi-double and fragrant. It can be clipped into bush form or allowed to climb over a fence or up a small pillar.
Bred in Holstein, Germany in 1960 by Wilhelm Kordes.
