This rose was found growing near a grave on the grounds of an old fort (1714) in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Medium sized, cupped, light pink flowers were bravely blooming in mid-December when cuttings were collected. The original plant is five feet tall and fairly compact in spite of obviously not having been pruned for years. The myrrh fragrance is outstanding; foliage is neat and healthy. We cannot be certain this plant is a Noisette, but it has most of the outstanding characteristics of the class.
