Thérèse Bugnet. Medium pink. 35-40 [petals]. 72". Repeat.
A rugosa hybrid. Upright, open, vase. Suckers freely. Clusters of deep pink buds burst into ruffled flowers 4 inches (10 cm) across with heavenly fragrance. Blooms best if pegged or trained on a fence with canes running laterally - produces lots of laterals and sub laterals (much more bloom). Few thorns close to blossoms make this one of the better shrub roses for cut flowers. Lovely gray-green to bluish foliage on attractive red canes. Nice orangish red fall coloration with remote chance of orange hips. Prune as little as possible. Resistant to black spot but often infected with powdery mildew and leaf spot disease. Some dieback common, but basically very hardy (zone 3 to 4).

"The Mysterious Parentage of ‘Thérèse Bugnet’", by André Imbeault and Peter Harris
Clears up a long-time misunderstanding about the parentage of ‘Thérèse Bugnet’. Bugnet's own notes and his 1941 article, “The Search for Total Hardiness” (American Rose Annual, pp. 111-115), make it clear that the 'acicularis' mentioned in the parentage is Bugnet's nickname for a seedling, and is not the species R. acicularis.
