Notes:
Tim Clapp of Mattocks Roses says, "one of the best roses for disease resistance, 'Fragrant Memories' has only had a sniff of fungicide and remains completely disease free. It has a
superb fragrance and is ideal at the back of my mixed border."
blackfly reports: 'Fragrant Memories" is very similar in flower to the David Austin roses that I have. It appears to be disease-resistant, but only time will tell. So far, it is a lovely rose and I don't think you would be disappointed with it.
