Comments Its buds start out high centered then open to wonderfully muddled flowers with tightly reflexed petals. The color is shell pink, occasionally kissed with a bit of carmine. The health of the rose is generally good, though it does not like frost. In warm, sunny, dry weather it is a terriffic rose. Where the blossoms get wet they ball and rot.
