I'm happy that I took a chance on this pretty rose. The slender smooth canes are a joy and the sweet little flowers hang down in a pretty way. Every year, I like it more than the year before.

This rose blooms early, before my Bourbons, HPs and DAs growing nearby.

Very pretty, Kitty.

We don't see the boursaults used very much. I have often wondered about them. There is something about the once-blooming ramblers that appeals to me.

She's an exquisite rose and a very worthy one to introduce the spring blooming season in your garden. How nice to see one of the lesser-known roses here.

I didn't buy it because it was a rambler, I was just looking for thornless roses. It's more of a tall arching shrub for me and not really a climber that wants to grow long winding canes into a tree. It self supports very nicely.

My BB arrived today. I am glad to hear she self-supports, because that gives me more options on where to put her. I have Mme Sancy and L'Heritieranea on arbors, so maybe I'll just let BB grow free.

It's lovely, Kitty! Nice clear shade of pink.

The first small canes will be floppy so tie them upright to a support until they grow some sturdy canes.

I have a found Blush Boursault from an old garden in Uppsala. The house was built in 1650 but the rose was probably planted some time between 1837 and 1846.

Beautiful! I can see why you love it.
