Comments In bud it promises the rich golden color of dubloons, but by the time it opens it is usually a pale apricot. And petals continue to fade as they age, reaching buff or ivory before they fall. Sometimes the flowers have a very neat and formal organization; and sometimes they are rather informally shaped. Owing to its R. setigera heritage, the plant is vigorous and cold hardy, bearing large clusters of flowers with very light repeat. Its R. foetida heritage imparts yellow pigment and a weakness for blackspot. It is best grown in a coolish summer climate or a dry location.
