Comments As is frequently true of roses with a mix of red and yellow pigment, the color of this grandiflora rose can be quite variable. It can range from yellowish with pinkish markings to orangish or even russet. The fragrance is quite strong, making this a rather unusual rose by virtue of both color and fragrance. Regan Nurseries claim it is cold hardy to zone 4b, which makes it amazingly tough for a hybrid tea-like rose. Expect some blackspot in torrid summer climates.
