This robust rosebush was a gift from Lëtzebuerger Rousefrënn to the young Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg for her 18th birthday. Princess Alexandra is the fourth child and only daughter of the Grand Duke Henri and the Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.
The elegant buds open out into large intense pink double rosette flowers with a strong fragrance. This plant flowers regularly throughout the summer, encouraged by deadheading and regular feeding and watering. This robust upright-growing rosebush with its round flowers recalls historical roses. Its dark foliage has a good resistance to cryptogamic diseases.
