All American Award winner for 2005. This creamy, pink and yellow reverse Hybrid Tea displays large blooms, up to 5″ with a wonderful spicy fragrance. Elle grows from 2 to 4 feet high and 2 feet wide on shrubs of glossy, dark green leaves.
There are a couple of versions of Elle. The one we have at Peninsula Park Rose Garden was bred by Jacques Mouchotte before 1990 and was introduced by Meilland International. Both Star Roses and Jackson & Perkins introduced Elle into the United Stated in 2005.
