The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
Madame Laurette Messimy
This rose is perfect for growing in a container since it only gets about 3-5' tall. The scent is a true rose scent, and is appreciated best in the morning hours, before the sun burns off the fragrant oils. It blooms in clusters of salmon-pink, semi-double flowers.
