Sheila’s Perfume Rose

Last weekend, I purchased a new rose bush called Sheila’s Perfume from a local nursery.  The flowers are extremely fragrant, which surprised me because many of the most attractive roses I have seen do not have much of a fragrance.  I have heard that hybridizers focus more on looks than fragrance when developing new roses. 

I am also impressed by it’s multicolored pink, orange, and white patterns.  I have bought 3 new roses this year, but this one is my favorite right now.
