Lemon Scented Rose

kr222(6b)August 25, 2008

I am looking for suggestions for a very strongly lemon-scented rose. I stated David Austin, but any lemon-scented rose would be great. The stronger the lemon smell the better!

My suggestion is not an antique, it is a hybrid tea. Purple passion has an extremely strong lemon smell. It is vigorous, bs resistant and has a beautiful bush form. It is one of my favorites and one of my most fragrant roses.

May I suggest Lamarque. It has a lemony scent to my nose, don't know if I would say a strong lemon scent but lemony non the less.

Sunday Lemonade is awesome - Just like Countrytime Lemonade Crystals. It is a sport of Lemon Spice

Pink Peace has a lemony scent in my garden. Not the one in full sun, but the one planted in morning sun.
