Comments Its pink blossoms start as high centered, spiral buds much resembling La France's. They open cupped blossoms to reveal a large boss of yellow stamens. Possessing a kind of formal yet cheery poise at every point in their development, these fragrant blossoms look good from start to finish. The plant is well branched, healthy, and cold hardy.
