The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
`Perle d'Or's blooms are very similar to `Cecile Brunner', except for their light salmon/pink color. The buds are like those of a miniature Hybrid Tea and they open in small clusters. Once open, they resemble little pom-poms. `Perle d'Or' can get up to 4 feet tall. It, like `Cecile Brunner', loves our heat, and its fragrance can easily scent a room. It is rarely out of bloom.
