Bred by Dee Bennett, USA, 1989 this wonderful rose graces many gardens as a remembrance rose and because of its extremely hardy nature and reliable repeat flowering, I never hesitate to recommend this rose as a gift to the least green-thumbed gardener – once in the ground this rose will perform and be a delightful reminder of the Mother for whom it was planted.
MOTHER'S LOVE has beautifully long pointed buds of the palest pink with slightly deeper pink centres which may fade in the very hot sun. It is a very feminine rose with graceful branches often producing a single rose but very often a cluster of blooms. The perfume is charming and MOTHER'S LOVE is particularly pleasing if grown on a STANDARD stem but must be well supported by a steel stake!
The bush is very reliable with very little disease issues and lovely glossy mid-green foliage and there are a good number of prickles! The flowers last well in the vase where the perfume can be truly enjoyed.
- Delightful rose to gift as a remembrance of any Mother
- Pale pink blooms which pale to almost white in hot sun
- Lovely sweet fragrance
- Glossy mid-green foliage on a reliable bush
