Jude the Obscure - dark, depressing and brilliant - Hardy's masterpiece traces a poor stonemason's ill-fated romance with his free-spirited cousin. No Victorian institution is spared — marriage, religion, education — and the outrage following publication led the embittered author to renounce fiction. Modern critics hail this novel as a pioneering work of feminism and socialist thought.

Jude The Obscure. Magnificent flowers with an incurved, chalice shape. These are buff yellow with a paler yellow on the outside. Prized for the quality and strength of its fragrance. Excellent, strong, healthy growth. Bushy, rounded, well branched. Uses: Flower beds, rose borders, containers. Summer pruning recommended. May also be trained to form a fragrant climbing rose.
