Comments Individually, its flowers are not pretty; they open quickly and the yellowish stamens can look horrible with the lavender and lilac blossoms. But it does have other attributes that make it worthy of consideration. Firstly, when it blooms the blossoms completely cover the plant. Secondly, there is a very pleasant apple and spice fragrance. Thirdly, its vigorous, nicely branched, and well covered with dark glossy disease resistant foliage. It's hard to recommend a rose I personally dislike, but it's harder still to argue that it's a bad rose.
