Observations made from specimens grown in a garden environment in Albrighton, Wolverhampton, England in August 1991.
Susie reports that 'Cottage Rose' has performed incredibly well in London. She has always by instinct picked off only the blooms as they fade (not knowing at the time that you were meant to snip off a bit more!) and it rebloomed almost constantly. Mid-pink fading to a pale pinky-lilac. A bit leggy though, like most of his roses. Hardworking.
