Rosa 'Unrootable Red China' (Rosaceae)
This Rose is a beauty. It fulfills our antique Rose requirements for luscious fragrance, no-spray disease resistance and a loose rather than formal form. 'Unrootable Red China' grows in a rounded form 4-5' in height and width, blooms on and off late-spring through summer, and sits comfortably among perennials and other shrubs. The double flowers are dark pink, almost red, and emit a soft fragrance reminiscent of baby powder. Blooms are not large, but are plentiful and welcome in our gardens. From Rosemary Sims, this old New Orleans Rose has a mysterious past. Not native.
