Comments It's almost four decades old, yet there is no other rose like it. When it performs well, its ivory petals blush to salmon at the tips of perfect, high-centered buds. In other cases it is still a pleasant mixture of pale pastel yellows and pinks. This is not, however, one of the more robust growing of garden roses I have encountered. For that reason, I suspect, it is falling out of distribution.
