Rosa 'Paul Ricault'

This mid-nineteenth century beauty has the characteristics of several classes of roses, and as a result its placement has long been a topic of discussion.

The blossom shown above opened in the refrigerator: it had been picked as it was opening, and since a storm was predicted, I put it in the fridge to hold it for a photography session later. This rose has a great scent.
