Le Rosier Èvêque

Le Rosier Évêque eller The Bishop som den också kallas, klassificeras både som centifolia och som gallica i roslitteraturen. Den beskrevs redan 1790 i Frankrike så det är en ros med anor. Rosorna är purpurfärgade med skiftningar i grålila. Busken blir ungefär 1,5 meter hög och den blommar en gång under högsommaren. Jag har fått mitt exemplar som ett rotskott av min trädgårdsvän Karin. Zon 5.

Le Rosier Évêque or The Bishop, as it's also called, is claimed to be both a centifolia and a gallica in the rose literature. It was first described in France in 1790, so it's an old cultivar. The roses are magenta coloured with shadings of greyish purple. The shrub grows to a height of 1.5 metres and it's once flowering during July. I got my sspecimen as a runner from my gardening friend Karin.
