‘Mary Wallace’. R. (LCl). Fair rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. Habit [diagram] 4. Van Fleet, 1924. [Provenance: Joyce Demits, California]. Cupped, reflexed blooms of soft, warm pink, large, borne in small clusters. We have been very impressed by the duration of bloom on ‘Mary Wallace’, which gives flowers for most of the summer in California.
