ROSA 'Marie Daly'
Marie Daly Rose, Polyantha Rose
A compact polyantha shrub rose, 'Marie Daly' bears clusters of semi-double, soft pink flowers throughout the growing season. Discovered in Texas by Greg Grant as a sport from the nearly white antique French polyantha rose, ‘Marie Pavie’(1888), 'Marie Daly' has far more colorful highly fragrant flowers.
This classic polyantha rose has a bushy habit and stems lined with very few thorns. Its compound leaves are medium green and resistant to spider mites. Flowering may occur from late spring to frost, though the first flush of blooms is typically the heaviest and flowering may wane when temperatures become very hot. The fragrant flowers are soft pink but may become bleached to light pink in the hot summer sun.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in slightly dry climates, because dry air disfavors the many fungal diseases that plague roses. In moister areas, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between roses through good planting and pruning practices. Roses are also susceptible to a suite of viral and bacterial diseases as well as insect pests, so it is wise to select robust and resistant cultivars. This cultivar is susceptible to black spot.
Compact, shrubby roses such as this are ideal for both garden and foundation plantings. The clusters of flowers are also long-lasting when cut and retain their fragrance in bouquets.
