Comtesse Cecile de Chabrillant
I was looking for some "Victorian" roses to plant in our new garden which is in a lovely Victorian terraced house that we are renting in Oxford. I tend towards the Bourbons, especially the most strongly scented roses. I found a really interesting looking nursery in the UK that specialises in old roses here:
One of the roses they offer is a Hybrid Perpetual called Comtesse Cecile de Chabrillant which seems to have wonderful flowers with a good scent. I went ahead and placed an order for her along with my Bourbons. I guess it's too late now to change my mind, but I'm wondering, does anyone have any experience with this rose? Any suggestions or recommendations for planting her? What can I expect? Go ahead and give me the bad with the good (but I'm hoping for mostly good!)
Below is a link to their page on the rose.
