Comments Heavily reflexed ivory petals are flushed with lilac pink. The reverse is pale ivory. A full, partly open bloom has a sumptuous quality. Bronze new foliage sets the blooms off to perfection. Fraagrance is strong. It's a rose distributed where weather is warm and dry, and will probably be best grown in those conditions.
