The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
This little rose can be used in a variety of ways in your landscape. It works equally well in a container, as a small hedge or border, and as a specimen. The buds are pale pink and they open to off-white, semi-double flowers. The fragrance is quite delicious, too. The expected size of `Marie Pavie' is about 3' to 4'. It blooms in cycles and the blooms tend to be mostly white in our heat. Some afternoon shade would help keep the blooms pink.
