Extremely fragrant long-lived rose Review by Suzi
My father planted a Chrysler Imperial rose in our rose garden 25 years ago. It was still producing beautiful blooms when we moved away this spring. The fragrance is lovely. It blooms over and over from spring into fall. It lasts pretty well after being picked and always spreads its perfume. I must have another in our yard now that we have moved. I heard that Mr Lincoln was the most fragrant red hybrid tea, but its fragrance is not nearly so strong. (Posted on 8/4/2016)
