Comments The rose produces pinkish flowers with polyantha plentitude on a largish frame. Grown under perfect conditions it can completely obscure its sizable frame with flowers. The rose has nothing to do with Cecile Brunner, and there are several respects in which it is not improved. In parts of California where this rose was bred - where the weather is perfectly suited to growing even the worst of hybrid tea roses, and where everything is always better than it is everywhere else - this rose might be seen as a measurable improvement over the original, making bigger flowers in a more assertive color. But in most other places it is not so good as the rose it would replace.
