Comments Perfect in form and substance for a cottage garden, this is one more of those very dependable polyanthas. Its inch wiide pompon flowers are borne in big clusters and are a strong, rosy pink that contrasts nicely with white and blue flowers. They may fade in hot sun. The rose is vigorous and free of disease. And it bears blossoms with good continuity through the season.
