"Maggie". Syn. "Pacific". Old. Bourbon. Medium red. Repeat-flowering. This rose was found by William Welch in Louisiana and has become very popular in the USA. Most agree that there is some China in its background. The full, globular, bright red flowers have overlapping petals that darken in cool weather. There is a pronounced spicy scent and it makes a fine cut flower. It has a bushy growth habit, reaching 4-6 ft (1.2 - 1.8m) high, is almost thornless and does well in rich soil. This rose, which makes a wonderful hedge or pillar rose was found by Welch at a farm of his wife’s grandmother, Maggie. Some claim it is one of the roses created by Rudolf Geschwind, like ‘Gruss an Teplitz’ or ‘Eugene E. Marlitt’. Zones 5-10. Found in 1980. Parentage unknown.
