Duchess du Grammont

Regular price


A French bred Noisette, this gal makes an impression as a garden shrub. Large and spreading, her strong canes support blooms in clusters of ten to twelve. A prolific bloomer, her fragrance is the type that wafts across the garden. You will seek her out to get a noseful straight from the bush. Born Beatrix de Choiseul-Stainvillewas, the Duchesse was cool enough to run with Marie Antoinette but unfortunately suffered the same fate and died on the guillotine in Paris, April 17, 1794. Starting as fat peony-like buds of rich pink and opening to silvery pink and white, this rose is a lovely tribute to her and all things Revolutionary Paris.
