Comments Its big, high-centered flowers are dressed with nicely reflexed petals. The soft pastel colors range from a pale apricot to coral and pale pink. There is always a subdued sensibility to the dusky shades. A reference in French claims the flowers to be fragrant and long-lasting as cut flowers. It also claims disease resistance, which is possible - though that has never been the first priority in LeGrice's introductions.
