Rosa 'Belle Portugaise' - A large (15-30 ft) vigorous climbing hybrid tea rose with glossy dropping foliage and large pale salmon pink flowers that fade to nearly white. 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. We grew this rose from 1999 until 2015 when we lost our large specimen cutting stock plant.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Rosa 'Belle Portugaise'.
