Penelope Rose Shrub

Rose Penelope, is a beautiful white shrub rose from Pemberton, England. Penelope rose is a hybrid musk rose that was introduced in 1924 that is remarkably disease resistant.

The adorable rose buds start out shell pink and open into gorgeous white blooms with lemon centers. The flowers are very striking with a lovely rose fragrance.

Penelope rose growth habit is tall, vigorous and bushy, and the disease free foilage is medium green, matte and leathery.

Picture Of Penelope Shrub Rose

'Penelope' rose os one of Pemberton's shrub roses that has retained its popularity for almost 85 years. The disease resistant rose has large, arching canes that would be perfect for draping over a wall or fence. It can also create a hedge if sheared on top early on to create density.

I love the eye catching rose blooms that appear in large clusters. Penelope rose flowers continuously through summer and fall and produces lovely rose hips in winter.

It's a very hardy shrub rose as well. So if you live in a cold climate zone, this rose is for you. Rose 'Penelope' is an award winning rose that received the National Rose Society's Gold Medal in 1925, and a Garden Merit Award in 1993. Zones 3-11, height about 6 feet tall.
