Comments Apricot colored high-centered buds open and fade to pale pink flowers. They are about five inches across, and are held nicely facing outward on a well branched and foliated shrub. As is true of all Griffith Buck introductions, it is cold hardy in Iowa and resistant to blackspot. It does occasionally get some powdery mildew but it is a pretty good bet as a healthy rose across much of North America.
