The rose Louis de Funès is a cultivar (type hybrid tea).

It was named by Meilland after the famous French comedian Louis de Funès in 1984.[1]


The shrub is bushy and has large double flowers with twenty petals of an orange nasturtium colour. Flowering begins in May and continues until frost. The life of flowers is long and it gives off a very strong perfume.
