By any other name it could not smell so sweet. Producing large, fragrant roses all season long, at times this shrub can appear to be a four foot tall dome of huge, medium-red, very double blooms in the garden. Planted by itself in the center of a knot garden this rose easily upstages the usual choices of sundials, gazing balls or bird baths. On a warm, humid day the scent permeates the air as a fine French perfume. Texas Rose Rustlers think that this might very well be an old Bourbon 'Eugene E. Marlitt'. It was collected by Dr. William C. Welch of Texas A&M University in Louisiana. In the Texas Hill Country this rose will form a four foot mound if not pruned into a shrub. It can grow larger further East where it will receive more annual rainfall.
