Comments The roses are a delicious soft orange, almost a faded apricot, and they are full of petals. There is also a subtle sweet fragrance. Introduced the same year as Sweet Magic and in the same color range, it has almost the opposite overall effect, being soft and fragrant rather than luminous. It's nice to have a choice between such good cultivars. In the British Commonwealth countries it is classified as a "Patio Rose" - bred to be larger than a mini, but well suited to be grown in a pot.
