Comments There is a delicacy to the blossoms reminiscent of Pemberton's best hybrid musks. It also shares the good health, repeat blossoming characteristics, fragrance, and fine habit typical of the class. The individual flowers are single and a little ordinary. And it is not quite so well branched or so foliferous as, say, Ballerina. It tolerates some shade and would probably look best defining the border between a woodland and a more formal garden.
