Comments Its rich apricot petals are kissed with scarlet. The form is high-centered and long lasting, making it a strong exhibition contender. The plant produces flowers with very good continuity through the season, and is not troubled by pests or diseases.

BTW: When one rose breeder names a rose after a contemporary rose breeder, one is pretty sure that the rose has to be one in which he as full confidence. Through the 1980's and 1990's Bennet and Saville were nearly synonymous with the breeding of miniature roses in the US.
