rose félicité-parmentier-Round buds with long sepals open to lightly cupped flowers that are usually quartered and sometimes have a button eye. The numerous small petals are pink with white edges at first but fade to cream as the flower reflex into pompoms. The flowers are carried in tight clusters of three to nine on dense upright plants with gray-green leaves. Although the plant blooms just once in midseason, the bloom time is long. Relatively shade tolerant and a good choice for a small garden.
