Large, perfectly formed, soft yellow rosettes produced freely. Delicious mixed fragrance of tea rose and myrrh. Very healthy and reliable with attractive, bushy growth.
Ideal for shade
‘The Pilgrim’ has some of the most perfectly formed blooms. The buds open to reveal many petalled cups, which eventually open out to form quite large, evenly shaped, flat rosettes. The colour is a very attractive shade of yellow, the petals paling slightly towards the edges, giving a softness of colour that is very rare among yellow roses. The flowers are produced freely and repeat well. They have a fine fragrance, which is a perfect balance of tea and English myrrh. Its delicate charm makes it ideal for cutting for arrangements in the home.
