Paul Bocuse is one of the Generosa series of Modern Shrub roses hybridized by Guillot/Rosaeraies Pierre Guillot of France and released in 1997.

This rose was named for Chef Paul Bocuse who, was born on February 11,1926, Chef Bocuse, a descendant from a family of chefs dating back to the late 1600's,on the banks of the SaƓne in Collonges-au-Mont-d'Or, where the Bocuse's have been cooking professionally since 1765, when his ancestor Michel opened a little auberge in an abandoned flour mill.

Paul Bocuse is a French chef based in Lyon who is famous for the high quality of his restaurants and his innovative approaches to cuisine.


The Blooms of the Paul Bocuse Rose, grows in clusters that are a rich apricot in color, rosette shaped, fully double, quartered and deeply cupped.

Actually in just one vase full of cut flowers, you will see a variety of color. Apricot, salmon, pink, and apricot lightly flushed with pink as the bloom begins to fade.

A repeat bloomer throughout spring, summer and fall.

An upright shrub/bush with shiny dark green foliage.

A very good cutting flower. The cut flowers of the Paul Bocuse usually will last anywhere from 3 to 7 days.


The Paul Bocuse Generosa rose is a fragrant, disease resistant foliage, and does best in full sun.

Like most shrub roses Paul Bocuse tend to bloom prolifically over a long season. And continues to look with little or no pruning.

The stems, are quite prickly, may be upright, there are some stems that will arch, trail, or scramble.Reaching high and wide.


Deadheading is something that should be done for every rose bush.

When we remove any spent, faded, withered, or discolored flowers we are encouraging the plant to pouring its energy and resources in to forming new shoots and blooms, rather than fruit production (rose hips). Deadheading will keep the plant looking beautiful. However if you are growing the bush for the rose hips then you won't want to deadhead.

The main pesky pest that affects roses is the aphid, it will suck the sap and weaken the plant. Japanese beetles also harm rose flowers and foliage in certain areas. Roses are also used as food plants by the larvae of some butterflies and moths that feed on them.

Spraying them with insecticides is helpful, but may also harm the good critters as well, such as ladybugs which eat aphids.

      They really are lovely. We don't grow roses in our yard; although I love them I just don't take the time to properly care for them, so there is no point in trying. Maybe some day. Thanks for the education and tips.
