nastiest rose I have EVER seen.
Once again, someopne mentioned Paul Neyron as a candidate for their garden. While I fully appreciate there are gardens and gardens (soil, climate etc), I have to say that even after seeing some absolute dogs (stripey things, I am afraid are totally on my hate list even though I have one...but that's another story)....the very worst, most ungraceful disease ridden rose I have ever seen in my life was a hatefully huge specimen of this horrid rose. Yes, I know there are many who love gigantic blowsy things but the rust, the BS, the mildew - this rose had them all. Ugly, ugly leaves, dismally floppy heads of a grim pink (with lots of brown curly bits). Ugh, feeling ill just recalling it. Strawberry - this rose ought to come with a health and sanity warning.
