'Botzaris'. Raiser and parentage: unknown. Introduced 1856. Type Damask. Size 1m x 1m. When we read about the classical old roses, mention is often made of such roses as 'Fantin-Latour', 'Maiden's Blush', 'Madame Hardy', and 'Charles de Mills', 'Botzaris' deserves to be ranked among these old beauties for several reasons. The flower is flat across the top, is quartered, and comes from a fat pinkish bud, developing into a large 10-12cm quite double creamy-white bloom sometimes showing a green eye. It has a lovely scent and flowers all over a compact plant, with mid-green foliage, in the summer only. It is quite hardy and really is one of the most beautiful old roses. I saw it first in the magnificent garden of the late Valdemar Petersen of Love, Denmark.

‘Botzaris’ = Damas… boutons rosés à longs sépales feuillés… fleurs blanc ivoire à quartiers, très pleines et richement odorantes, d’ordinaire groupées en bouquet. Leurs pétales entremêlés entourent un petit bouton brodé. La floraison en juin-juillet est unique mais prolongée. Buisson dense et épineux, au feuillage sombre... il déteste les étés pourris. Introduit par Robert, 1856.

Botzaris A very pleasing little rose, probably owing its whiteness and distinct fragrance to Rosa Alba, the hep is not of true Damask shape. Very double, opening flat, creamy white, even lemon-white in the centre, quartered and with button eye.
