Just across the driveway from 'Violette' in the side garden is a combination of 'Clotilde Soupert', spiderworts, and geranium. The marriage of white, pink and blue or purple is my favorite color combination in the garden.
Clotilde is a low-growing rose. Mine hasn't been in the garden for very long, maybe 2 years, so it will get bigger, but now I'm not even sure it's 2 feet. I think that's why DH overlooks it when he walks around the garden. Still, in spite of its small size and pale color, it seems astonishing to me that anyone could pass over it. I mean look at all those petals! I do love a single rose, but look at that. It's decadent. (Edited to add: very fragrant too!)
Yum, Clotilde Soupert is perfection in a rose.
