Centifolia

Centifolia roses are also known as 'Cabbage' Roses, because of their huge globular flowers and multiple overlapping delicate petals. They form large slightly 'floppy' bushes up to 1.5m in height with heavy double flowers that hang from slightly soft stems, but their mainly pastel pink colours and strong fragrance make them a must for any garden. Centifolia (or 'One Hundred Petals') roses are derived from a hybrid that appeared in the 17th century in the Netherlands, and are related to damask roses. The Centifolia are all once-flowering, and as a type - they are notable for their inclination to produce mutations of various sizes and forms, including moss roses and some of the first miniature roses. (Varieties of this type include: 'Fantin Latour', and the exquisite 'Berenice').
