Redoute is a sport from Mary Rose, last week’s Rose of the Week. Redoute is identical to Mary Rose except its flowers are a soft shade of lilac/pink. I love Redoute. The colour is gorgeous; it is the kind of pink one finds in the Alba Roses.
Redoute is free-flowering, repeats well and forms a good, shapely, bushy, twiggy shrub. Like Mary Rose, it has only a light fragrance.
Redoute is named after Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840), a famous rose painter. His work included some 170 varieties from Empress Josephine’s garden at Malmaison.
Redoute was released by David Austin (UK) in 1992.

love this one! It’s so delicate!
Lisa, I love this one too.
Another beauty in your collection, Glenda. I enjoy roses that show one color while budding but another when blooming. It’s nice to have a little surprise in the garden. 🙂
John This is the second rose in my Mary Rose, Redoute and Winchester Cathedral hedge. Winchester Cathedral is not cooperating with any nice flowers at the moment so I can’t feature it in next week’s Rose of the Week. It will have to be next year now.
