Mrs. B. R. Indeed Can!

Mrs. B. R. Cant, my wonderful old-fashioned tea rose is at her peak right now.  It has a nice tea-like fragrance to go along with a disease-free bush that gets HUGE.  This sucker can get 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide if you let it!  The blooms are full, silvery pink, and big.  To make matters even better, this rose is very easy to grow from cuttings.  What a lovely pass-along plant.  Get you one!  Above is a whole bush shot of my plant.

This is a picture up closer where you can see how many buds and blooms there are.  This bush blooms in many flushes through the year. 

Here's a close-up of a bloom cluster.  Notice all the petals.

My very favorite rose ever, of many we've grown...thank you for sharing the photos.

That's about how ours always looked in New Orleans - once mature, forever in bloom. We grew Mrs. B.R. Cant in a tough spot with little soil, between street and sidewalk. People passing by loved it.
