Rosa 'Deuil de Paul Fontaine'
|Bred to have perfect, exquisitely-formed buds and long cuttable stems, the base of the plants tend to be bare and have somewhat angular top growth. Because of their pruning and maintenance requirements, and for easy viewing, many gardeners grow them in formal rose beds. They are also grown in natrual- or casual-style gardens. While leaving them accessible for pruning and care, mix them with other shrubs and perennials to hide their awkward shapes. Easy to find, nurseries, hardware stores and some grocery stores sell them in spring.
Introduced by Fontaine of France in 1873, it is a good choice for smaller gardens. Round double flowers keep blooming, in deep shades from magenta to nearly black.
