La vie c’est comme un jardin - perfectly true! You can either walk the cobbled paths without looking right or left and ignoring the fragrances around you, or you can stop for a moment, take a deep breath and enjoy the view, thus enriching your life and your soul. This is exactly what Papa Meilland, a legend in the world of roses, invites you to do - live your life by enjoying its beauty. Its invitation will start making sense when you decide to stop for a moment in front of this force of nature. The powerful fragrance, the elegant, velvety, beautiful red flowers persuade you to meditate and reset. You don’t have to take our word for it. But do trust the roses lovers all over the world when they say that Papa Meilland is the most beautiful red rose on the face of the Earth.
The gold medals at many rose shows – including a gold medal for fragrance at the renowned Baden-Baden Rose Show – as well as its inclusion in the Rose Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies, make Papa Meilland one of the most wanted roses.
Papa Meilland is a sturdy rose, with particularly beautiful foliage. It can reach 3m in height and the big flowers (up to 12 cm) with 30 to 40 petals create a large lush flowering, bound to enchant every time. Expect it to bloom throughout season, from May to late autumn, and be prepared to forget what you were doing every time you pass by it.
