Comments "Festive" and "informal" are two ideas that spring to mind when one sees the warm pink flowers of Canterbury open to show their bright yellow stamens. Where it gets plenty of sun, water, and food it will slowly grow to be an attractive rose, bearing wavy warm-pink blossoms through the season.
