Comments China Doll has a solid reputation for continuous blossom production. It also has a solid reputation for good health. It's nicely branched and makes for a lovely little shrub. The silvery pink flowers have little noticable form, but there are so many of them it doesn't really matter. Foliage is a bright and glossy olive which means that the plant will add some interest to a rose garden even when not covered in flowers. It is anything but rampant, but it seems untroubled by disease.
