Comments One if its subtle charms is expressed when it holds its coral-orange flowers face-out rather than face-up. Its an especially useful trait when it is grown in a raised bed because the blooms are then near eye-level. The particular shade of coral is at once bright and garden friendly, and it would make a unique and worthy addition to many gardens today. It has all but disappeared from commerce, but Botanicas Roses suggests that its influence lives on in many of Dee Bennets prize-winning miniature varieties.
