Comments Perky high centered blossoms in red and yellow are produced on a miniature rose frame with good continuity through the season. Owing to its complex shading and its good substance, it can be a formidable contender on the show bench. Despite lacking fragrance and a slight weakness for blackspot, it really is a rose that has withstood the test of time. It is one we can expect to see in distribution for so long as there are even a handful of good mini distributors left.
