Remontant roses

Remontant roses are the link between the old and modern roses, almost all important rose classes were involved in their creation. Many of the " old roses " only bloom once. With the modern roses, the blossoms were extended into autumn. As recent DNA studies have shown, this property was achieved by crossing the Rosa fedtschenkoana . The roses, which were mainly created in the second half of the 19th century, were often shown at rose exhibitions in the Victorian era. Pure white, pink, crimson, purple and two-tone, mostly fragrant, they form shrubs approx. 100 to 180 cm high.

The interest of the breeders was at times limited to the colors and beauty of the flowers, so that many Remontant roses do not smell and their suitability as garden plants faded into the background.
