The specimens I happened to see, in many different places and climates here in Italy, and also the one my mother has in her garden, smell divinely of pure gallica rose, at any time and with any weather. I know that not everybody agrees about this, in fact some people (expecially in UK) find it only faint smelling...

What do you think about? Some people think there are two different roses under the same name, one powerfully fragrant and the other only lightly fragrant, but photos around seem very constant... I find this things very strange!

"Erinnerungen an die Villa Mills" (Souvenir of the Villa Mills) is a water-colour by Eugen Napoleon Neureuther, painted 1838, of the Villa Spada, then owned by Charles Mills, on the Palatine hill of Rome. Sir Charles Mills (January 23, 1792 - October 4, 1872) was a British banker and a director of the East India Company. He was created Baronet of Hillingdon in 1868.

I planted this rose two years ago (this being the second season in my garden) it has not flowered yet. Is there something I am doing wrong or should I give it one more year?

It's my experience that this rose requires quite a bit of winter chill. If your climate doesn't provide sufficient winter cold, it very well may never flower. You can bury it in ice several times in the winter to trick it into believing it's getting what it wants and see if that works. Otherwise, there are many other roses which will cooperate with you much more easily.

Thanks, I will give it one more year as I really want this rose to bloom. I loved the look of the rose and was so excited when I purchased it. The bush is doing well and hopefully, next summer I will see a bloom.
