Comments Echo is a sport of the famous climber Tausendschon. Like its parent it is very productive of flowers and of easy culture when given steadily moist, rich soil. It bears pale pink informal flowers that darken as they age. The effect is wonderful!

BTW: Echo sported to produce other polyanthas, a number of roses named Koster are closely affiliated. First there was Greta Kluis, then there was Anike Koster, then was Dick Koster which sported to Margo Koster . And the story continues with five or six other sports.
