This rose is the first plant I ever planted in that garden, some 23 years ago. I don't remember its real name, but it has become Emilie's rose, probably because Emilie had helped choose it. (Emilie is my eldest daughter, she is now 25.). This is a strong plant, it has survived two transplantations and is still happy to bloom. The flowers are large and the scent is very nice.
