Marilyn Monroe--the best

Probably the most beautiful rose I grow. It is long lasting and tough, but so elegant. It is the perfect rose in my opinion.

This cluster was still looking good 5 days later.

I so agree, It is the most beautiful rose, and the fragrance is wonderful. Because of your pictures Kathy, I purchased one a few years back, the only thing I don't like is that it is such a thorny bush.

Beautiful!!! The cluster shot is glorious....I had this rose, but it must have been a weak start as it did not make it thru winter. Might try it again!!!! Thanks..Lesley
