Clothilde Soupert (Clo-teel Sue-pair) fulfills the adage that good things come in small packages. A wonderful polyantha variety with an obvious French influence.  She produces fully double flowers in pale pink with a cerise pink heart. The petal arrangement has that "petticoat" look and floods the breeze with intense sweetness.

Clothilde is my go to rose when I want to make potpourri or rose water. Happily, she repeats flowering throught the growing season.
