Duchesse de Brabant Tea Rose: said to be favored by Teddy Roosevelt for use as a boutonniere.  Lovely in a vase, as well.  Lovely in the garden.  Profuse blooms, pleasant fragrance, happy in hot summers.  I have had a Duchesse for eleven years or so, and every summer her yield of blossoms increases. Pretty planted with silver king artemesia and any blue or purple clematis.

One of the best and most popular roses of its class. ‘Penelope’ produces large trusses of coppery-salmon tinted buds. These open to creamy pink, medium-sized, semi-double flowers with prominent yellow stamens, later paling almost to white.
