Though classified as a Hybrid Perpetual, one rose authority calls ‘Ferdinand Pichard’ "the last of the Bourbon race." A very unique flower, it is described as a pale blush striped crimson in a cupped, double bloom. The foliage is a pale lettuce green and the bloom has a very sweet scent. Striped and mottled roses might sound quite vulgar, but "in person" they are very attractive and desirable.
