The Summer Damasks.
Blush Damask, Frequently labelled 'Blush Gallica', I have a suspicion it may be a hybrid with a Scot's Brier; it is certainly not a typical Damask. It forms a large, very twiggy bush, in time as much as 6 feet high and wide, bearing neat dark leaves, and is well covered in June with multitudes of nodding blooms. They are dark lilac-pink when half open, reflexing into a ball, lilac-white at the edges. A favourite of Gertrude Jekyll's; it grew well in her sandy soil, but has a rather short flowering season.

Grows into very strong bushes... is a good Rose for all gardens. It will put up with any treatment. [Jekyll] has it on the top of a dry wall where it tumbles over in the prettiest way and blooms even more freely than the bushes on the level.
