Finally, my first bloom of the season and I'm kinda tickled it's this one. I adore this rose, there's just something special about it. I got this from Vintage last year, sold as "Not" General Allard.
Who ever he is he's a beauty! Such a rich color!
Nice and healthy looking, too.
Great color. Who is it?
Yeah, that's an intense color - I love it!!!!
Please show us more pictures as it grows!!!
This is the bloom after it opens. Petite, bright pompons that catch your eye all the way across the yard. The flowers last forever and it seems like there's always a couple blooms on the bush. Fragrant too!
Vintage wrote "We now feel that (General Allard) is incorrect, though this rose has much in common with the real General Allard. Our current view is that this may be a seedling of General Allard, possibly even the very famous rose, Mme. Laffay." a.k.a. Morgan St. Pompon. I know it's probably not correct, but I call her Madame Laffay. She needs a feminine name, such a little flirt.
