Smith's Parish * Bermuda Rose

The Smith's Parish seems to never stop blooming. If just let to grow no trimming they can get to 6-8 feet tall and wide. Smith's Parish Roses are often white or pink or both. Sometimes petals are different sometimes there are stripes. I like the small 1" semidouble blossoms of the Smith's Parish Rose. The leaves are small and dainty are are the flowering canes. Smith's Parish Rose is a profuse bloomer and it repeats from Spring through Fall and even Winter if you don't prune it. The Smith's Parish Rose is called a Tea Rose by some, a China Rose by others and yet others call it a Bermuda Rose with no know origin except it was found in Bermuda.
