I read this book in the 1970s or possibly the early 1980s. The story is set in medieval times, the main character is a girl and it has to do with damask roses (breeding or raising them?). There's more too it of course, but that's all I remember.
The book was a paperback and the cover had a full colour drawing of the girl on the front standing by some roses. I believe she's wearing a rose coloured cotehardie or something similar. A rock wall or well may have also been in the background of the cover.
