This is, I am told, the best rose for rose petal biscuits
Still in bloom in October

That’s what it says in the books but I reckon Henri Martin is even better – but less likely to rebloom now
Not very good on the names of roses… but love the perfume
And what species/genus is it please…
Hi – that is an old fashioned ragosa rose, commonly seen in hedges around ruined homesteads – deep magenta in colour and beautifully fragrant.
Never heard of rose petal buscuits though – sounds lovely!
I finally mastered the ‘biscuits’ this summer! Hooray…. there have been many failed attempts. Here’s that recipe http://ayearinredwood.com/2013/07/30/rose-petal-biscuits/
I have that rose too. I love the wildness of it and the fact that it looks for no attention whatsoever. I think that`s why it chose my house…
I don’t have it here… but the perfume from it is gorgeous… must get one.
It is pretty. Is it still in bloom because of the nice summer you had?
Not altogether sure… I’ve got raspberries still coming too! It has just been so mild up to the last few days.
