Bourbon Roses

These roses originated on the island Reunion (near Mauritius in the Indian Ocean) which used to be called the Ile de Bourbon.

Early Bourbons were climbers and only flowered once a year. Later hybrids are mid sized shrubs which repeat flower.

Examples in the park are Souvenir de St Anne's and Variegata di Bologna (shown here).
