I have been told that these lovely old fashioned roses are over 85 years old and have been growing in our yard on the side of the house since the home was owed by the mayor of our town between 1932 - 1937. We have three bushes, this salmon one, a cream one and a light pink. I love how fragrant they are and look forward to their blooms! This year, our daughter picked these and we decided to press some petals for future spells and charm bottles. I may even use some for incense!
