Comments Danae is among the lowest rated of Pemberton's hybrid musks but it is still a very good rose. Its high-centered pale yellow blossoms fade toward white when exposed to the sun. The flowers have more of a hybrid tea form than those of many of Pemberton's roses, though they never reach 3 inches across. As is true for most of the hybrid musks, the beauty is in the total effect of the shrub: canes, leaves, flowers and all. The fragrance may not be quite so strong as that of some hybrid musk roses. It's healthy and of easy culture.
