Rose Felicite ParmentierRound buds with long sepals open to lightly cupped flowers that are usually quartered and may have a button eye. As the flowers mature they go from light pink to creamy white and become reflexed and form a pompon. Flowers are carried in clusters of three to nine and last for an exceptionally long bloom time (up to six weeks). The plants are dense, compact, upright, and stiff, and carry gray-green leaves and lots of thorns.
