Comments Geisha's warm pink, cupped blossoms are complemented by red stamens. This combination is found in only a few good roses, a more popular one being Dainty Bess. Geisha never gained great popularity - probably because it is so infernally difficult to get growing, but it does have a tiny but solid cult following. It does appear to be fairly resistant to disease.
