Comments Pollen parent Gartendirektor Otto Linne is among the most disease resistant, vigorous, well branched and foliated, foliferous of roses one could find. Seed parent Zorina has been used as a parent to many warmly colored floribundas. Dream Cloud is pretty much what you would hope for in the cross. Its a very nicely branched and foliated shrub that is about two feet high and five feet wide, bearing cheery apricot colored flowers. And lots of them.

BTW: Sadly, this rose appears never have made it into production. A lovely specimen lives in the Somerset County rose garden in NJ and it should be propagated. So too, its neighbor Ferdy.
