The rose petals start out a strong salmon color and quickly fade to shell pink. There is lots of substance to them, enhancing the high-centered form. Foliage is extremely glossy and the rose is quite disease reistant.

Sometimes the leap in color detracts from the effect of the rose. And sometimes one wishes there were more blossoms.

ARS members give it a solid 8.3
