Comments Sixty three fragrant, shell pink petals open and fade to candy pink, curling slightly at their tips. The result is a blossom of exquisite beauty; one that once had an almost unfair advantage on the exhibitor's bench. But styles change. Good, fragrant pink, hybrid tea roses are a dime a dozen. And Bonsoir is all but gone from commerce. Bonsoir.
