Comments Belinda can make great trusses of single flowers that are rosy in color. In very bright, sunny climates the color can fade a bit. In cooler cloudier climates the color is a solid, dark rose shade bordering on cerise. As is true of a number of hybrid musk roses, Belinda does well in part shade. Carrying on the work of Pemberton, Bentall also bred The Fairy and Ballerina. Her roses tend to be more shrubby and more generous with flowers than Pemberton's hybrid musks; but the flowers tend to be smaller and less interesting individually. There is also less emphasis on fragrance.
