General Kleber

General Kleber

An excellent moss rose with bright pink large flowers that can look to have a touch of silver on them.  Fragrant blooms with petals that appear crumpled as well.  Stems are covered in lime green moss all the way to the tips of the sepals.  Not many thorns evident although the plant has some bristles.  Grows to about 1.6 x 1.2m, spring-flowering.  Bred by Robert in France, 1856.  Notice in the above photo the moss on the stems, it is quite soft to touch.
