One that satisfies my soul. Good fragrance too.

I love that rose!!! It's one of my favorite roses. Mine tend to ball in the rain though.
Yours looks amazing!! I loved the first photo, but then I saw the second which is even better. Well done!

Thanks everyone for the compliments on 'Andre le Notre'.
I thought it strange the French should honor an American actress. Shall have to start referring to this rose as a he!?!

I'm glad to hear you love her/him too and that it will live through a hard winter. If we get decent rain this year I'll watch for 'balling'. Drought has a recompense after all!

Iris_gal - NO!! NO!! :)
I grow mine in pots and overwinter them in the garage. Betty White will NOT overwinter here outside. :)

Oops. Good for new gardeners in zone 3 to know. And me.

That's true dedication to move rose pots to protection! I don't envy you that job..

Yes, I have 50 rose bushes that my DH moves to the garage on a dolly. I really like protecting roses this way vs. in the ground.

Ooh, luscious. Iris, don't you just want to kick back and relax in the center of that big gorgeous bloom? I guess I'm getting a little carried away here, but that rose is outrageously beautiful. Diane

Thanks Seil. Nanadoll, it is outrageously beautiful. One of those 'ahhh' roses for me. I may really really like some of the others but this one . . . . oh my.
