Thérèse Bugnet

Named for the hybridizer's daughter (prounounced boo-nAY). As is common with the Rugosa species, her shrubby plant is very hardy and covered with quilted grey-blue-green leaves of unsurpassed disease resistance. Her long lilac pink buds open to large lovely scented blossoms. Hardy. Avoid chemical sprays. Disease resistant. Only available own-root.
