Rosa Souvenir de la Malmaison
A tall and robust shrub rose. It has a good tolerance of poor soil and partial shade, and adapts well to growth in hedges or pots.
Its very fragrant flowers are pale pink and have a quartered shape, with prolific flowering throughout the summer; the outer edges of the petals are prone to damage by heavy rain.
It is an important rose as it was cultivated by the French garden of Malmaison, which is widely renowned for rose breeding.
