Scepter d'Isle, the perfect rose

isabelleolikierOctober 16, 2009

Maybe the best English rose : very nice cupped roses, great fragrance, flowers continuously and no disease.

I've made a slide on my blog (when will it be possible to add fragrance to a slide ?) :

Wonderful photos of your beautiful Scepter d'Isle! I agree with you, I think that she is one of David Austin's best Roses! ...Missy
