Comments Its shell pink blossoms can also be shaded with yellow, orange, buff, copper or coral. The petals are highly reflexed and fragrant. There seems to be a kind of awkwardness to both the flowers and the plant that may make it difficult to use well in a garden. Otherwise, it is reputed to be relatively disease resistant.
