Comments "Feminine, elegant, beautiful" are the words chosen by its breeder to describe this rose. Large flowers in this exact shade of warm pink cannot fail but elicit a warm, doting admiration if not some sort of outright rose-lust. If the rose does not look edible at first, then smell it and enjoy the notes of apple, raspberry, and damask. Delicious. The rose grows on a well-developed plant and is not bothered much by disease.
