Comments Sometimes this is just another pink hybrid tea rose: an assertive but delectable bubblegum pink rose with very high centers. Sometimes, though, it has a subtle mix of pink and pale coral with a touch of silky gloss to the surface. It starts nicely high-centered with elegantly reflexing petals and opens into a blossom that is sometimes muddled or quartered in the best old rose style. There is a good, strong fragrance. We do not know much about its health or vigor. A climbing version of this rose is sold by Vintage Gardens roses.
