Penthouse (Macngauru). Very tall growing, robust rose. This rose flaunts big pink blooms. The non-fading, wavy petalled flowers are produced in an endless profusion all season and are ideal for cutting. The prolific growth of 'Penthouse' is upright, wide with simply masses of growth, densely covered in large-leaved, glossy deep green foliage.
