Comments Given ideal conditions, Ginger Rogers can produce sizzling hot coral-salmon high centered blossoms. But frequently the blooms are rendered a candy pink, suggesting they fade pretty quickly as they open. Sometimes the consequences of that process are stunning. It may not be an especially good rose for hot and muggy climates unless it is more resistant to disease than its parent Tropicana; but it does well in California's central valley and in France.
