Breeder unknown, circa 1811.
One of the most exquisite Damasks, second only to 'La
Ville de Bruxelles' for perfection of form and fragrance,
in my opinion. A smaller shrub than 'Bruxelles', it grows to 4 feet
at most. It can become a bit floppy with age and may benefit from
support. Otherwise, this is a first rate OGR and well worth growing.
You'll love the fragrance!
