The Montville Rose
Rosa 'Duchesse de Brabant'
Synonyms: Rosa 'Comtesse de Labarthe'
Although its formal name is 'Duchesse de Brabant', this rose has become better known in Southeast Queensland as "the Montville rose" due to it being widely planted in that Sunshine Coast town. It goes very well in the subtropics and is an ideal variety for novice rose growers in this climate to get started with.
The Montville rose was covered in more detail in the 18-06-2021 edition of Get Results Gardening.
