Comments The color of the flower varies from a pinkish salmon to a soft golden/pale apricot, occasionally touching on salmon, cerise, or orange. The flowers are high-centered and open in a form characteristic of many floribundas, nicely displaying satiny petal surfaces. It is not an extremely well branched plant, so one may wish to grow them in sets of three. But it's not a color that is a cliche for roses, and so it is likely to draw some attention, especially from other rose growers.
