Comments Nearly white semidouble flowers are edged in an assertive dark pink: that's the way it is supposed to look. Sometimes the whole rose is pink or white, depending on its age. It does bloom very generously and with good continuity. So its overall effect can be enjoyed even when its individual flowers are unremarkable. That it is still in circulation, even after some of its more famous offspring such as Nicole have gained great popularity in the same niche, suggests that the rose is a good doer and has much going for it.
