Comments Love, Honor, and Cherish were three roses introduced by Warriner to turn a profit on the romantic sentiments that attach to the marriage ceremony. Of these the greatest if Love. But that's a different story. Cherish makes a densely branched shrub that produces a goodly number of pinkish salmon flowers with ivory bases. When it's perfect it's very good. But sometimes the flowers fade to an ugly shade of pale. It's not completely resistant to blackspot, and is best used in locations with coolish and dry summer weather.
