Mary Rose vs Gertrude Jekyll

16 years ago

Hi all, I am going to be putting in a new rose. It will go inbetween Crown Princess Margareta and Marilyn Monroe. I have been so pleased with Crown Princess that I've decided to go with a David Austen, and their rosarian gave me some to choose from that perform similarly to CPM. I've narrowed the list down to Mary Rose and Gertrude Jekyll.

So...I need your input.

I'm looking for fragrance, repeat bloom, and upright blossoms. I really don't want those that hang down with weak stems. CPM does a little of that but not too badly. I've seen photos of Mary Rose with her blosssoms standing upright.

Thanks in advance for your help,
