Hi guys! Im hoping you can help me with a question thats been bugging me awhile. Is this a Pascali rose? Ive seen other Pascali's and mine doesnt look like them at all. Mine has a strong fragarance, musk I believe. Mine is white with a pink blush in the center that does not fade. The rose blooms look at tad deformed as their opening, but are gorgeous when there fully open. The blooms themselves are quite shortlived. I bought the plant almost four years ago at Wal-Mart (I mean how can you pass up a $3 rose!?), the package said it was a Pascali. The plant has a lot of dead wood in the spring, which I prune back. The plant is only 2.5 ft. tall and wide. It blooms in the spring and late summer. If its not a Pascali do you know what it is? Thanks everyone!

I don't grow Pascali but I've seen it in other gardens. It doesn't look like any I've ever seen either.

It might be Jardins de Bagatelle. Check out it's description and photos on Help Me Find and see what you think.

Here is a link that might be useful: Jardins de Bagatelle

Or possibly Sheer Bliss.

Hi! Thanks for the help cherriej and diane_nj. I googled both of the mentioned roses. Im pritty shure Jardins de bagatelle is not my rose. Sheer Bliss may be my rose, but im not positive. SB has the form, coloring, and strong sent like mine does. But I read that it is a shrub; mine has never made it past 2.5 ft. I also read that this rose is not incredibly hardy in my zone. Could this be the reason (if it is Sheer Bliss) that it is so small, and has never grown into a shrub?

Yes, the zone difference may account for the size. Does it die back every year?

Hi! Yes it does die back. I mulch it heavily before winter hits. It has a lot of dead on it in the spring; I have to cut half of it back. Its a prity scrawny little thing; it doesnt have a lot of foliage and I dont think ive had more than 12 blooms on it at a time. I love the scent though. Ive looked at a lot of pictures, at it does look a lot like the Sheer Bliss rose.
