Though classed as a Noisette, the full blooms of this rose are more of a Bourbon
or Hybrid Tea in shape. The flowers are intensely fragrant, cupped, and double
opening the palest of pinks, then cooling to creamy white. Vigorous to about 20
feet and easy to work with, "Madame Alfred" will create a vertical focal
point in any garden. Its nearly thornless canes make it a very easy rose to train.
We have had flowers from it in January, when it was the only plant in the garden
to bear a bloom.
