Comments Bred in and for warm climates, this rose when grown in dry, warm, sunny weather with ample moisture can be one of the greatest pink roses of all with its very tall buds opening to well formed perfectly pink flowers. These perfect flowers are also very fragrant. It's a very heady experience. Outside mediterranean climates it may need protection from humidity, frost, bugs, heat, and all the other natural hazards lesser plants deal with more gracefully.
