Ispahan Rose Flower

‘Ispahan’, also known as ‘Rose d’Ispahan’ and ‘Pompon des Princes’, is a clear pink, half-open kind of Damask rose, a type of garden roses introduced from the Middle East in European breeding during the crusading 13th century. Its origin is unclear – it was introduced in the UK by the garden designer Norah Lindsay (1873–1948), but was probably developed in the early 19th century – probably in Persia. The cultivar is named ‘Ispahan’ after the city Isfahan in Iran, renown for its gardens and roses, where the cultivar was apparently discovered in a garden.
