Overpowering perfume; stiff necks carry blooms upright; long stems & glossy foliage render it unique. Minimum care is required.
Tight buds forming into a modern pointed shape; unfolds with a multitude of thick, firm petals to an open bloom reminiscent of the full roses of yester-year.
Lilac toned with red, like many of the old damask & gallica rose favourites.
Named after the University of the Free State.
