Belle Doria (Commandant Beaurepaire)

This is one of our personal favorites among the striped OGR's, bearing clusters of beautifully cupped 3” blooms in a dazzling blend of cerise, pink, mauve and near-red striping on a white background. It bears a lovely rich fragrance as well. The plant is less like many other Gallicas, showing what seems to be the influence of some other class, perhaps Bourbon or China? (It was bred in Belgium in 1847, and does not as closely resemble its French counterparts.) A taller than average Gallica, it grows upright, but bushy, to about 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide. A generous Spring bloomer, we have found it offering some repeat in the late Fall as well in our garden. Note: this is unusual and may not happen in your garden, depending on climate influences. Winter hardy in most cold climates. Photo and Comments Copyright 2007 Paul Barden and The Uncommon Rose
