Comments Creamy ivory blossoms turn scarlet red on their tips as they open. They reflex nicely to produce pointy tipped blossoms. The show repeats. The effect might be compared to that of Double Delight, but the colors are materially warmer. Unfortunately there is little fragrance. The rose is reputed to be disease resistant.

BTW: Though often cooler in tone, Lorise Wojciechowski can sometimes approximate the colors of Imperatrice Farah while offering some fragrance.
