Comments Its high centered flowers are packed with petals that reflex at the tips in a coy way, producing a very retro look. The petals are a complex amalgam of yellow and lilac, giving rise to an array of colors from pale pink through coral to soft orange mottled with dusky pink. It is anything but vigorous in the garden, but it is also not plagued with disease. BTW Declared extinct by the ARS at one point, it is distributed by Rogue Valley Roses.
