Comments The flowers are pink and can be produced in huge clusters on a low and spreading plant. There's not a lot of fragrance. Remontance is below what we have come to expect from the likes of The Fairy. We speculate that this means the rose thrives in tough situations. It's a polyantha bred by Alister Clark in Australia and it has not yet gotten far afield.
