Fantin Latur carries the same name as the Empress Josephine's garden painter, and it is indeed a rare and choice work of art.  One word describes Fantin Latur, sumptuous.  The large pink bloom weight the canes so that they bend over and touch the ground in the spring.  The tall bush carries the fountain shape, narrow at the bottom and arching over at the top.  Fantin Latur appears to be a pink fountain in the spring.  We recommend it highly.
