Sombreuil Rose

Tea Rose - Sombreuil


This healthy but thorny climber is "the hardiest and most vigorous of the white Teas." The creamy white blooms are very large, flat, and quartered, with a most delicious Tea fragrance. The plant is reportedly free from mildew. A mannerly climber, ‘Sombreuil’ is ideally suited for use as a pillar rose, or to be trained on a low wall, fence, or trellis. A beautiful rose for a warm summer evening, when the white, saucer sized blossoms seem to glow in the dark.
