The introduction of 'Jaune Desprez' set rose growers on their ears. Three qualities long sought after occurred all in the same rose. It was remontant, climbing and yellow! Today we would not consider the soft apricot hues as truly yellow, but in 1830 it was a dramatic occurrence. With precisely the same parents as 'Lamarque' it was different in flower form and color, but similar in growth habit. Capable of growing to 20 feet in mild climates, this fine rose bears semi-double flowers which exhibit soft shadings of apricot and are occasionally touched with rose. The fragrance is exceptional and sweet.
