To mark the 25th anniversary of the Schengen agreements, Lëtzebuerger Rousefrënn chose this rose to highlight the European spirit. The 5 petals of the rose symbolise the five founding countries of the Schengen area. In 1985, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands opened their borders to enable the free movement of their inhabitants.
The colour of each flower is unique: the pink edge shows different shades from dark to paler pink and a white centre. The yellow stamens exude a delicate, herbal fragrance. The ‘Schengen Rose’ flowers between June and November; in autumn it has orange red rosehips. This bushy shrub has medium green foliage.
