Comments Beautifully cupped and packed with petals in the manner of Paul Neyron, the flowers are a dark pink of about the same shade. They are lightly fragrant. The plant is vigorous, cold hardy, and densly covered with foliage.

BTW: Photos of the blossoms evidently depict at least two different roses: one has deeply cupped flowers that are packed with wide petals and quartered. Another has narrower petals, markedly fewer in number. Naming confusion surrounds many of Geschwind's roses and it seems most intense in the case of Aurelia Liffa.
