ROSAE spinosissimae incarnatae
Flesh-coloured thorny Roses

These delicate Scotch Roses are very fragrant, and resemble each other in many particulars. One of them was introduced only last spring, from Rouen in Normandy, amongst many other new species, by Mr. Crace, who informed me that it there flowers with him (unless prevented by frost) all the year round. That it continues longer in bloom than the other, is certain, as we found it in flower in October, nearly two months after every appearance of inflorescence had retired from the other Scotch roses. It is also distinguished by its very crowded petals.

The only collection in which we have as yet seen it is the Hammersmith Nursery, where it was called Lee’s Eternal.

As the 1896, 1899, 1902 and 1912 references are all French ones, I wonder if the C. Brown mentioned as one of the breeders, could have been a French distributor.

Later edit: Or more likely, Brown was Lee's nursery superintendent. Refer 2000 reference.

Would Stanwell Perpetual be better in the sun (maximum summer air temperature about 28°C) or in the shade? Thanks!!

I have grown this rose in a part-sun garden in Lincoln, NE (a hot humid climate that is zone 5/6). There are fifty year old trees throughout my 2/3 acre garden. It is a stretch to say that any of my roses get the required 6 - 8 hours of sunlight. The plant was disease-free and was almost always in bloom. The blooms were gorgeous. It was not a cutting rose so I am not growing it currently. I am keeping it on my list for future use as a landscape rose when space becomes available. I envision it planted on 18" centers in a circular bed all of its own. It would spill over the sides and look like a giant flower pot. Karen

Thank you, Patricia and Karen, for your prompt replies. Sounds like a great rosebush!
