The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
The buds of `Penelope' are pink-peach looking, and they open to reveal a semi-double flower in creamy shades of white. You can use this rose as a hedge or as a specimen plant. It will make orange/pink hips in the fall if you don't dead head the spent blooms. As a shrub, it will get 5x5 feet tall and wide.
Bred in England in 1924 by Rev. Joseph Pemberton.
