Comments Identical to the original, except that its flowers have more pink pigment. Some will enjoy the stronger coloration, others find it a little awkard or in harmonious. It is a little prone to blackspot, and is best grown where summers are not too hot and humid. This rose produced a climbing sport which does not flower much.
