CHARLES DE GAULLE – Hybrid Tea rose, large multi-petalled, unique warm lilac mauve/blue – one of the finest of all the older mauve roses.
Charles de Gaulle is particularly suited to being grown as a standard rose because it has a natural shape where the branches grow wide of the bud union and form an urn. It is not a particularly tall growing rose – to 1.2mts and almost as broad. It flowers continuously throughout the season on a somewhat short stem and can form a cluster of perfectly formed, very highly fragrant blooms on thick stems … as such, one stem is perfect to give the appearance of a whole vase of flowers! Charles de Gaulle is exceptionally healthy and free-flowering in hot weather.
- One of the best old mauve roses
