Comments McGredy was going for the gold on this one, and he got it. It's a floribunda that makes high-centered blossoms in a luscious apricot or warm gold. These do fade as they age, reaching a pale apricot or shell pink. The flower in bud is high-centered and the open flower is a little cupped with wavy petals. Fragrance is said to be strong and redolent of musk. Color is richest in cool weather; therefore it's primarily distributed where summers are cool.
