Rosa Felicite Perpetue - Rambling Roses

Description of Felicite Perpetue Roses:
This is a vigorous, muscular rose bush with few thorns. The hardy flowers are quite big and full double with a beautifully plump rosette shape. The colour is creamy white with just a hint of pink and the scent is a very mild primrose.
Felicite Perpetue rose bushes will do quite well in the shade. It is very popular with low-maintenance lovers, as it doesn't need any pruning unless it gets too big. Disease resistance is good and the leaves are tough and healthy, often remaining on the branches well into winter.

History and Parentage of Felicite Perpetue Roses:
Properly called Flicit et Perptue, this French rose dates back to 1827. It was introduced to the UK in 1928 and it was given the RHS Award Of Garden Merit in 1993.

St Perpetua was an aristocratic Roman citizen of Carthage (Tunisia) and St Felicitas was her slave. They are believed to have been executed in the 3rd century for the crime of renouncing the religion of their forefathers and becoming Christian.
An account of their incarceration, supposedly written by Perpetua herself, could be the earliest surviving piece of writing by a Christian woman. This work, known today as "The Passion of St. Perpetua, St. Felicitas and their Companions" contains descriptions of the visions experienced by the tortured prisoners. The content of these visions was later used as evidence in church debates about whether or not unbaptized babies go to hell. This debate would give rise to the popular, though not doctrinal, Catholic concept of Limbo of Infants: an outermost circle of Hell where no torture takes place, but god is not present.

The idea that unbaptized babies are unable to go to heaven was publicly examined and partially revised by the Vatican in 2007.
