Its plusses: it is completely unique. It has a color scheme not much different from Paradise - lilac kissed with crimson. And it has old rose form. We speculate that this means it is fragrant.

The flowers are just about two inches across. The plant is fairly low and well branched.

But if one were to judge from one example, the rose is not generous with its flowers: this rose had just one. And there was some question in my mind whether the plant would have looked better or worse with more flowers.

ARS members rate it 7.6.
