Comments Its pale apricot blossoms are well formed and they evidently keep their good form for a while since the rose wins at the show bench. A very good ARS rating suggests that those who grow the rose are usually very happy with it. And it makes a number of short lists for good roses to grow in CA. It may need some protection from fungal disease if grown where nighttime weather is hot and muggy.
