Comments In many respects, Blossomtime may be thought of in the same terms as New Dawn. Its flowers are pink, it is healthy and vigorous. And so on. But two special qualities distinguish the blossoms of Blossomtime. One is the way its flower petals scroll back in the style of the best old tea and hybrid tea roses. The second is that the petals are slightly bi-colored with the backs being a darker pink than the fronts. The reddish new foliage also helps to set off the flowers. Add to this good fragrance and late season hips and Overall, it's a good show.
