 Architecturally beautiful at all times of the year, the 'Swamp Rose' has graceful, arching, and nearly thornless branches with narrow, willow-like leaves. This is a native American rose, growing across the South and East in moist, swampy ground. Its ability to grow in poorly drained soil as well as in normal garden conditions make it an anomaly among roses, but very versatile in the landscape. No plant could be more beautiful weeping into a stream or reflecting pond. The flowers appear in late spring, after most species have finished blooming. They are vivid pink, double, and very showy. Redout painted this rose in the garden of Empress Josephine of France.
