Albertine is richly fragrant, and has loosely double, light pink blooms in early summer. Reddish-salmon buds open to large, loosely double, light pink blooms with some of the character of a Hybrid Tea rose. They have a wonderfully strong, rich fruity fragrance. Its growth is branching and bushy, with small dark green leaves. Attractive red to purple rose hips are produced in autumn. They make attractive climbing plants, making a great hedge screen or a container plant. Note, Albertine flowers only once a season.
