Comments The insides of the petals are scarlet, fading to cerise. The outsides are apricot fading to chrome yellow. Fragrance is strong Blooms have a perfect, high-centered form. There are few roses like it.

To confuse things, Meilland has introduced a floribunda that, iif it blossomed as generously might be confused with Masquerade.
