‘Jude the Obscure’ vies with Golden Celebration for the first place as the most magnificent of the English Roses. Its flowers are very large and of incurved chalice shape. Their colour is a pleasing medium yellow on the inside of the petals and a paler yellow on the outside. It has excellent, strong and almost completely disease-free growth. This rose is particularly fine in a dry climate, although it may ball in the rain.A very strong, unusual and delicious fragrance with a fruity note reminiscent of guava and sweet white wine.
