Hardy to at least USDA Zone 4. Completely hardy here in USDA Zone 5. Gorgeous flowers with a haunting old rose fragrance. Queen of Denmark has a long spring blooming period of at least several weeks. The shrub itself remains clean and fairly orderly. On its own roots it tends to sucker, but not overwhemingly so. Establishes quickly, so it's very productive by its second year. Disease resistant, insect resistant, and even the deer and rabbits don't seem to bother it much, unlike some of the other roses that are nearby. A real winner, especially for cold zoners.

Funny that the original name, "Königin von Dännemark", is not in the list of names. Mind the double n, which actually is a misspelling, but the Booth brothers just kept using it, even though everyone else (also their contemporaries) spelled it as "Dänemark".

It has been referenced with that spelling and so has been added as a synonym.
Brent C. Dickerson notes "The name is seen spelt various and bizarre ways."
Thank you JJS.

The French name should be 'Naissance de Vénus'; the goddess is missing her accent...

If you click on the REFERENCES tab on the rose page, you will find that they describe the rose with varying shades of pink, from light pink to deep pink. Most agree that it is an atypical alba.

You may still have a mislabeled rose, but if you like it, it doesn't matter. It is possible that you have 'Maiden's Blush' instead of 'New Maiden's Blush'. MB appears to be more white with blush or light pink shading. I haven't grown any albas, so maybe someone from the rose community can give you better information. Check the REFERENCES on 'Maiden's Blush', it's a beautiful rose, no matter how many names it has been known by in rose history.
