Rosa Chapeau De Napoleon - Old Moss Shrub Rose

Rose Chapeau De Napoleon - Old Moss Shrub Rose

A midsummer-flowering centifolia rose, Rosa Chapeau de Napoléon is a medium-sized, deciduous, old shrub rose with a rather lax, bushy habit. The divided leaves are matte deep green. Moss roses are so called because the buds are encased in bristly, moss-like sepals, and the extensive mossing of the buds on this rose was thought to look like Napoleon’s tricorne hat. In midsummer, the buds open to exquisite, globular, clear rose-pink, quartered flowers, packed with petals (centifolia means ‘hundred-petalled’) and with a gorgeous, rich, old rose scent. The lax stems can be trained as a small climber. Moss rose Napoleon’s Hat holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
