Also known as "Rose dIsfahan" or "Pompon des Princes", this paragon amongst Damask roses has been seen growing wild on the hills of Iran, especially between Shiraz and the old caravan trading center of Ispahan. Residents of Shiraz still grow it in their walled gardens, where plants and pools are a release from the hot, dry land outside. When in full bloom, 'Ispahan' is covered until it looks like a fountain of pink. The shrub is vigorous and hardy, with a slightly bluish cast to the rough green leaves.
