The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
`Louis Philippe' is very much like `Cramoisi Superieur' in that the flowers are both dark crimson with an occasional white streak on one of the petals. It blooms throughout the year in our climate, getting about 3-4' tall. This rose is the perfect choice for a colorful hedge.
