Comments The tips of the ivory tinged flowers turn a bright cherry red. The color creeps down the flower petals as the roses open, but there is always an attractive blend of cherry and vanilla. It makes two or three good flushes in a season. The petals are a bit thin and in bone-dry climates the flowers can crisp before they color nicely. Otherwise, its nice shrubby shape, healthy constitution, and moderate vigor make it a pretty good choice for planting in either a bed or border.
