Buck Rose - Princess Verona

Princess Verona (1984)

Medium pink shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of Neyron rose (RHSCC 55B) open to double (25-35 petals), cupped to open, 3.5-4 inch blooms of lighter Neyron rose (RHSCC 55C) (very similar to 'Prairie Princess'). The blooms are borne in clusters of 5-15 and have a sweet, light fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is dark green and has good tolerance to foliar disease. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The compact, erect, 3-4.5 ft plant is bushy and blooms abundantly from June until killing frost. Plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
