Rose 'Marchesa Boccella' (Damask Portland)

This group of roses includes those deciduous shrubs that arose as sports or hybrids of the rose species and where much cultivated before the introduction of hybrid tea roses. While the flowering season is generally shorter than that of modern shrub roses, the flowers are outstanding for their rich fragrance. The grouping of Old Roses includes the following sub-sections: Alba, Bourbon, Cabbage, Damask, Dwarf Polyantha, Gallica, Hybrid Musk, Hybrid Perpetual, Hybrid Rugosa, Hybrid Sweetbriar, Moss, Portland and Scotch. 'Marchesa Boccella' (also sold as 'Jacques Cartier' or 'Marquise Boccella') is an old Damask Portland rose with flowers that are very full, and the numerous, short petals enfold one another in quarters around a button eye. Candy pink flowers fade to soft pink at their petal edges. Highly fragrant.

Planting

From Late Autumn TO Late Spring

Prepare the planting site by digging over the bed and incorporate liberal quantities of well rotted manure or compost; lighten heavy clay soil with half rotted straw. Dress the top soil with plenty of peat mixed with hop manure and chopped up turf. Fresh animal manure is harmful to the roots and should only be used in the bottom spit. Where possible, prepare the planting site a few weeks in advance. Do this in late summer for planting in autumn. Plant at any time between late autumn and late spring. Prepare a planting mixture of bone meal and moist peat. Spread out the roots in the planting hole and add the planting mixture until the roots are covered. Add soil and firm in the plant by treading.
