Comments Shell pink petals are suffused with pale apricot. In a helix, they pull away from the center bud. It is a flower of stunning beauty when it is perfect. There is some sweet scent, and the plant repeats well. Unfortunately the flowers ball in wet weather, so it is best grown where the weather is warm there is not much summer rain or humidity.
