Comments Its buds are apricot. Depending on conditions, the color might fade as the flowers open, ending up pale apricot, pale pink or white. They are packed with petals and have a neat but undistinguished floribunda form. Foliage is dark green and glossy, and is quite resistant to blackspot. There is some susceptibility to mildew. It is said to grow quite a bit taller than listed in hot, sunny locations. There, too the flowers also fade quickly.
