Rosa 'Belle Portugaise' - A large (15-30 ft) vigorous climbing hybrid tea rose with glossy dropping foliage and large pink flowers. Produced by Henri Cayeux at the Lisbon Botanic Garden in Portugal in 1903 it is a cross of R. gigantea with 'Reine Marie Henriette', a hybrid climbing tea rose. In late spring going into early summer the long pointed buds open into large (4-6") loose flesh pink flowers. The R. gigantea parentage makes this rose too tender for colder locations but this is a great rose for mild climates. Although it is prone to mildew the plants seem not to suffer adversely and this detriment can be somewhat overlooked in light of its virtues. Large plants can climb into trees and then cascade down elegantly - a stunning site.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Rosa 'Belle Portugaise'.
