Rosa ‘Robin Hood’

Hybrid Perpetual.  ‘Robin Hood’ has rosy carmine flowers, a graceful habit, and splendidly-shaped, globular, cupped blooms borne in clusters.  [Paul (1848, 1863), Henry Curtis p.5 vol.2/1853].



Horticultural & Botanical History

Bred by Laffay.  Rivers considered it a gem of a rose, and The Gardeners’ Chronicle considered there to be few better roses.  [Rivers (1854, 1857), Gard. Chron. (1849, 1851, 1852, 1856)].



History at Camden Park

Included in a handwritten list of roses dated 1861, probably intended for a new edition of the catalogue that was never printed.  [MP A2943].
