ROSA 'Perle d'Or'
Old-Fashioned Polyantha Rose, Perle d'Or Rose
An antique polyantha shrub rose, 'Perle d'Or' bears loose clusters of double, apricot-pink flowers throughout the growing season. The delicate flowers are very fragrant and rise from medium to compact, very bushy shrubs. Bred in France by Dubreuil and introduced by Rambaux, the name 'Perle d'Or' translates from French to "pearl of gold."
This classic polyantha rose has a bushy habit and stems lined with sparse thorns. Its compound leaves are medium to deep green. 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 old-fashioned, fragrant flowers are apricot-pink and highly double.
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.
