Origin and Breeding Controlled Pollination between seed parent (‘Meicelna’ x ‘Meipobil’) and pollen parent ‘Meihelvet’ (syn. Sonia). The seed parent is a non commercial breeding line. The seed was sown, germinated and grown to maturity with ‘Meisionver’ being selected for, medium pink flower colour, plant habit and strong fragrance. Propagation: by conventional T- budding method, all plants were found to be uniform and stable over several generations. Breeder: Alain Meilland, Meilland International Le Cannet France.

I think Caprice is the best rose in my garden. Puts up with any conditions: heat, burning sun, rain, cold, etc.. Has a very long flowering season. Loads of blooms, all perfectly formed. A little black spot at the end of the season, but that doesn't seem to bother it. Excellent as a cut flower, highly scented, long stems with very few thorns (the stems grow very quickly), one bloom per stem, repeat flowering all season. Perfect!

Not blackspot free, but the scent is very powerful, upright shrub, good repeat, with some die back in the winter. I am in Zone 10b.
