History of Adelaide d’Orleans

Adelaide d’Orleans is a very useful and beautiful rambler dating from 1826. Bred by Antoine Jacques head gardener to king Louis Phillipe it was named in honour of his twin sister. The clusters of fragrant white blooms emerge from pink buds . The stems are very flexible making them very easy to train over a variety of structures. Recent analysis has shown this to be a hybrid of Rosa sempervirens and Old Blush.
