Blossomtime is one of my 3 "desert island" roses if I could only have three. Presently growing it in Richmond, VA. When it was introduced shortly after WW2, it was listed as a Climber but quickly fell out of favor because it didn't climb. It is better grown as a free standing shrub. I find it to be very healthy, after the first flush always gives you blooms and when they open up have that full look and remain that way a descent time.and in fact I have one bud (frozen) on the bush now and it is mid December. Reminds me of Radiance in its two-toned pink blossom but has a higher center. This was one of the early New Dawn crosses after WW2 and one of the best in my opinion.

The first time I saw Blossomtime was at Sissinghurst garden in England. There is an old plant covering a large section of the side of the main house, a lovely old brick building. When I saw it (now many years ago) it was in full bloom and simply covered in the most lovely pink roses I had ever seen. The sight of those silvery pink flowers against the warm tudor brick was stunning and the memory of it is still vivid after 20 years. I haven't planted this rose in my garden because I don't have room for one, but I often think I should create space for one. It is truly one of the loveliest of all climbing roses.

this rose can bring perfect flowers of purest HT shape or quartered at the same moment. It's quite astonishing.
