Comments The flowers may range in color from a sort of shell pink to coral; but at their best they are pretty close to the color of canteloupe flesh. The blossoms are high centered in bud and open to neat flowers in the floribunda mold. It's an unusual and delicious color. Repeat is fast on a healthy bush. Superlatives tend to accompany accounts of this rose's many virtues. It is, therefore, out of distribution.
