Comments Where it gets the warm and sunny weather it absolutely requires, it is an outstanding rose: vigorous, foliferous, fragrant, and very interesting. It produces blossoms whose colors include red, pink, maroon, orange, and pink; and whose texture may be unusually wrinkled or creped. For anyone living in zone 8 or 9 who wants an unusual rose, this is a must.
