Cabbage Rose

Rosa centifolia ‘cv.’
Centuries old, the Provence or Centifolia roses are traditionally known as "Cabbage Roses" because of the multitude of petals per blossom. The first Centifolias were cultivated in Europe before 1600. In 1791, Jefferson ordered the "large Provence" rose from the William Prince Nursery in Long Island, NY.
