Old Hybrid Tea
"The genetic background of the much-beloved Centifolia roses is also much debated.
Some have reported wild Centifolias from various sites in Europe and Asia, others try to
piece together mosaics of species to make the Centifolia a complex hybrid. They were much
featured in the paintings of the Dutch masters. Typically, a mature Centifolia will be 4-5
feet high, leafy, and bear lush, fragrant, pink blossoms which not only nod in themselves,
but which also frequently cause the plant's branches to nod gracefully under their weight.
Colors of various cultivars range from white to deep rose-red, and there are striped and
spotted ones as well. `Common Centifolia', `Bullata', `Des Peintres', `La Noblesse', `Tour
de Malakoff', 'Unica'."
