Initial post 25 MAR 16 by Michael Garhart
Out of all of the old Pernet HTs in various gardens around Portland, this was probably among the 3 that really stood out. Columbia, Golden State, and this rose.

Crimson Glory and Etoile de Holland were planted en masse nearby, and they looked like pitiful twigs of mildew, with dark, scented blooms. There were about 20 of this plant, and they did not have the nasty mildew. They did have blackspot, but the plants were much more rugged, vigorous, and the color could be seen from the street. The color on this rose is very unusual. I have not seen it on another rose since. Most Pernet roses have awful plants, but this one was on the less awful side.
