Sweetly scented, remontant Hermosa, introduced in 1832, is one of the few Chinas capable of surviving zone 6 winters. In his informative Antique Rose Emporium catalog Michael Shoup mentions that it was a popular container rose for European window gardens. At the Brambles, it firs beatly under the Persian lilacs in the doorway garden.

Heritage, the only English rose to survive in my garden, blooms at the same time as Siberian iris Flight of Butterflies, Shasta daisies, Fortuniana and Sir Thomas Lipton roses.
