Teddy Roosevelt made this rose his favorite, often wearing a bud or flower
as a boutonniere. It is very nearly our greatest favorite, too. The cupped pink
flowers have a cabbagey roundness to them, as if they were picked from a luscious
old rose painting. Nearly continuously in bloom, these roses can be counted on
for a rich whiff of fragrance at absolutely any time of the day, even in the hot
Texas sun. The apple green leaves are slightly wavy.
