Jardins de Bagatelle

Post by Chris C. L » Sat, 22 Oct 1994 03:35:06



Hi,

There will be one more rose that I want to plant next Spring,
it is called "Jardins de Bagatelle".  Does any one have
experience with this rose?  I only know it is a Wayside selection
from Meilland, a grandiflora with fragrant, cream color blossoms.

Thanks very much.

I've got this rose.  I bought it accidentally, thinking it was an old rose
that I was unfamiliar with.  It was bred in 1986 by Meddiland.

This is it's first year in my garden.  It is doing fine.  It had a little
blackspot, but not much.  I don't spray and it survived, so It must have a
bit of resistance.  The flowers are very large, take a long, leisurely
time to open, have very good substance, and it is very fragrant!  It did
not produce all that many blooms this year, but the blooms it had were
very good.  It is a creamy white with pink edges, a bit like a paler Peace
rose.  I like it.  The only book that lists it calls it a Hybrid Tea, you
call it a Grandiflora.  Anybody know which it is?

We got our "Jardins de Bagatelle" from Wayside this spring and truly love
it. The plants are still very small & have not bloomed too freely this
year, but we planted them pretty late, so I'm hoping they'll beef up a
little next year. We haven't had any major disease problems with them. The
flowers are--how can I say this without sounding like the
catalog--breathtakingly lovely. If you fell in love with the picture in
the catalog (as we did), I think you will like the flower in person even
better.

I saw "Jardins de Bagatelle" in a friend's Garden this summer.
I wasn't very impressed, but then I'm not wild about huge,
chubby, "Peace"-style roses. Its much-vaunted fragrance I
thought was considerably inferior to that of "Sheer Bliss,"
another white with pink-flushed edges which I think is much
nicer in both form and color.

But that's just my opinion: also, I haven't grown it myself, so I
don't know how it behaves.
