Comments This simple flower displays a huge set of contrasting golden stamens. For those who love the esoteric this is an ideal choice.

BTW: Edmund LeGrice is known for breeding roses far off the beaten path and as such has a kind of cult following among rosarians. Dairy Maid was rediscovered by Texas Rose Rustlers in the mid 1980's and sold for some time by Antique Rose Emporium as Buttercup. It's a testimony to the rose's staying power.
