This rose, Prince Napoleon, is an antique rose. It’s a climber that reaches about 10 to 12 feet tall in my garden each year.
I love this roses delicate pink flowers. It also has a true rose scent that perfumes my garden nicely each morning or after I’ve watered.
That’s one trick that I’ve learned over the years … If you are going to be sitting out in the garden and you want to enjoy the smell of your scented plants water the garden about an hour before you want to sit outside. This seems to work best in the early morning or evening. I’ve done this a few times when we’ve been expecting guests or having an outdoor dinner party and everyone always seems to appreciate the beautiful scent of the flowers.
