Comments "One of the loveliest of all multiflora ramblers" G.A. Stevens is quoted as saying in Botanica's Roses. The flowers are not large, but they are beautifully formed. They open primrose yellow and fade in the sun; but while they fade they also develop a touch of pink blush which may turn them pale orange or salmon or pink. There is a subtle consonance to the way the flowers match the foliage and the way the plant develops that not many climbers can equal.
